        what inspired you to become a guide?

        I’ve always enjoyed teaching and sharing backcountry knowledge. There is nothing better than the look on someone’s face after their first backcountry powder run! By being a guide in the Tetons I get to be a part of that experience all the time!

        any advice for upcoming guides?

        Get educated! Read up on avalanches, take the courses, hire a guide, start with simple terrain, and don’t be afraid to turn around if there is too much uncertainty. Commit to being a humble life-long learner and you’ll be granted the best gift of all- a lifetime in the mountains!
