Born on March 21, 1956, in Boston, Ed Webster grew up in Lexington, Massachusetts and obtained a bachelor’s degree in anthropology from Colorado College in Colorado Springs in 1978. Married, he now lives in Boulder, Colorado, and is the author of the new Mt. Everest book, Snow in the Kingdom: My Storm Years on Everest. A publisher, author, lecturer, and photojournalist, Webster also has written two definitive guidebooks, Rock Climbs in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and Climbing in the Magic Islands to the Lofoten Islands of Arctic Norway.
