My goal is to get out in the mountains– climbing, running, skiing—- adventuring in every way I can, and showing others how to as well.
For 25 years I’ve called Aspen and Colorado home, and I take every opportunity to challenge myself and to encourage others to do the same.
As a competitive ultrarunner I’ve completed more than 50 ultra distance events including ten Hardrock 100’s. In 2016 I was the 15th person to complete the grueling Nolan’s 14 course here in Colorado.
As a ski mountaineer I was the 3rd person to ski the Colorado 14ers. In 2015 I was honored to be National Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year for Ski Mountaineering with my wife Christy and partner Chris Davenport after completing our project to ski the 100 highest mountains in Colorado.
I’ve climbed mountains all over the world including Everest in 2003, as well as Ama Dablam, Denali, and the high summits of the South American Andes.
Heading to Aspen and need some instruction or a guide for your group? I’ve been a ski instructor with the Ski Schools of Aspen/Snowmass for over 20 years and am fully certified through PSIA. Bowl hikes, family privates, one-on-one, I can make sure you have a great ski experience while you’re here in Aspen.
Guided climbs, hikes, runs, hut trips, backpacks, and backcountry ski adventures– I operate under the permit of Aspen Expeditions and all reservations go through that office. I have over two decades of experience in the mountains around Aspen, I’m a Wilderness First Responder and AIARE Level 2 avalanche certified.
