Danny Ozment
Guide: International, Washington, Alaska

Danny began guiding for Alpine Ascents in 2011, after spending the previous decade working in the ski industry.  His initial draw to the mountains began with backcountry skiing and ski mountaineering which eventually led to the desire to become a mountain guide and share his experiences in the mountains with others.  Danny continues to pursue his passion for ski mountaineering in the lower 48, Alaska, and Europe when he is not guiding in the Cascades, Alaska and Aconcagua.  Having grown up in Texas, Danny tries to spend as much time as possible in the mountains to make up for lost time not in the mountains earlier in life.  When not guiding, climbing or skiing, Danny can be found drinking a good latté, watching a Broncos game or hanging out with his Rottweiler/Tibetan Mastiff named Coola.
