I know, I know, it’s a climbing forum but I just moved to the Roaring Fork and am hoping for a tour guide. In order to keep the boss from filing divorce papers, it would be ideal to avoid bringing her into high danger avalanche terrain or on long, aimless tour. Getting the rundown from someone in the know before bringing her out would be most helpful.

I’m based in Basalt so anything in the Roaring Fork, Redstone, or McClure would be good, but am open to anything within an hour. Looking for a good mix of low angle, dog friendly, runs as well as scouting out some bigger lines for later in the season.

The good:

I’ll be on time.
Unless your a SkiMo champion, I likely won’t slow you down on the tour.
I’ll bring beer and snacks.
Have winter ready vehicle and am happy to drive.
Have all my own gear (beacon, probe, shovel, airbag)
Been backcountry for the last 8 years or so and have taken multiple avalanche courses.
My jokes are hilarious.
Somewhat flexible schedule, could swing mornings or afternoons during the week.

The bad:

I splitboard. And if you ski, you better stay out my line.

“You know the worst part about skiers? Everything.”

Tongue in cheek obviously, most of my partners are skiers.

​Shoot me a message if interested.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
