Instruction and Guide Training

On most trips Nick's guiding style typically involves some skills training and general mountain awareness knowledge. However if you are interested in a formal instructional course, consult with Nick to have your rescue, glacier travel, ski mountaineering, and backcountry skiing goals met. [1-5 days or longer for expedition instructional trips.]

Interested in becoming a guide, looking to advance your guiding skills and knowledge or needing mentoring and prep for AMGA Ski Guide courses and exams? Hire Nick to have a custom program created to suit your needs. Learn about the art of guiding from a well respected, qualified and certified guide.
