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.
