Guide: Alps

Dylan has been guiding since 2000, and has been an IFMGA/AMGA internationally certified mountain guide since 2007. Dylan went from a brief career in geology to an 8-year tenure of alpine guiding in the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, and South America. In 2008, he moved to the Alpine playground of Chamonix, France, where he occasionally skis from the summit of Mont Blanc to within a few blocks of home. Dylan predominantly ski guides in the winter months all around the Alps, Norway and occasionally Alaska. In the spring and summer, Dylan guides classic peaks in France, Switzerland, and Italy. Alpine rock climbs are amongst the most treasured outings, as are days of long paragliding flights around jagged summits and deep valleys. In the spring and autumn, Dylan works as an instructor/examiner for the AMGA’s mountain guide training and certification program. Also, as a former geologist currently wearing a guide hat, he provides risk management support for science groups in remote parts of Antarctica.

  • Gear Review: Fozzils Bowls

    By Mike Hawkins It has been a long day – one of the most demanding climbing days you have ever experienced. Your legs are wrecked. Your back is sore and you have small bruises on your hips from your hipbelt. You have sunscreen caked into every nook and cranny, but even that didn’t keep you […]

  • Gear Review: The North Face Phantom 50 pack

    By Mike Hawkins “Man, this is a really great pack…” I said it over and over for months until my wife had finally had enough of it. She had to get one for herself.  While 50 liters is a little small for most multi-day mountaineering and winter ski tours, the small size is plenty versatile […]
