Mountain Guide

Nick is currently in the process of getting his AMGA Splitboard Guide Certification. He is currently an Apprentice Splitboard Guide, which allows him to take people into the backcountry for non-technical objectives. He is also an AIARE Instructor, which allows him to teach recreational avalanche safety courses. 

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.
