Bret Wydysh

Wydysh is a respiratory therapist at the University of Utah medical center and is also working toward his AE-C asthma educator credential. He also has first-hand experience in living with symptoms associated with cold-induced asthma. “My work recently has been focused on respiratory health, but as an asthma sufferer since childhood and also coveting an intense passion for big mountain skiing—this is the perfect storm. I’m out enjoying my life to the fullest and I want to be able to help others do the same,” says Bret Wydysh, BSRT, RRT. “Talus makes an amazing product that truly helps cold-weather induced asthma sufferers get outside and enjoy an active life in a safe way. This mask is a game-changer for those who suffer.” “It’s so great that Bret has accepted our offer to join our health advisory team,” says John Sullivan CEO of Talus Outdoor Technologies. “He will be a great spokesperson, advocate and bring a wealth of updated asthma news and research to our team.” Wydysh is an avid skier, climber, mountain biker and runner, participating in all of these activities year-round. He also volunteers for the Salt Lake Climbers Alliance and coaches skiing for under-privileged kids through the SheJumps organization.
