Mountain Guide

Nick is currently in the process of getting his AMGA Splitboard Guide Certification. He is one course away from becoming an Apprentice Splitboard guide, which will allow him to take people into the backcountry for non-technical objectives. In 2023, he completed his PRO 1 Avalanche Certification, along with his Alpine Skills Course (ASC). Long term goals for Nick include getting his full AMGA Splitboard Guide and Alpine Guide Certification to help people safely enjoy the mountains the way Nick does. More immediately, Nick plans on teaching entry level avalanche courses in the winter of ’23/24.
