    Dane Fisher

    Guide: Washington

    Dane grew up in northern Colorado and, after a brief flirtation with film studies in LA, returned to the front range and graduated from CU Boulder with degrees in philosophy and creative technology design. While in Boulder, Dane was legally obligated to get into climbing and discovered his affection for the outdoors by working his way through the infamous list of 14ers. Since then, he has ticked a few more mountains off his list around the US and a couple in Mexico while he plans more international exploits. Before joining Alpine, he also put his degrees to good use working in children’s outdoor education, ski instruction, and outdoor gear retail. In the off-season Dane enjoys travel and has been lucky to spend time in Israel, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, India, and Nepal and is always on the hunt for tips for next year’s travel. During the season when he isn’t shoveling snow on tent stakes, you can find Dane biking, roller blading, and skiing or snowboarding. He is also an avid reader, movie buff, and music addict so please direct all your media reviews to him for approval.

      Climbing big mountains requires incredible endurance. You don’t necessarily have to move fast, but you have to keep moving for hours, days–sometimes even weeks.
