Evan Miller

Guide: Washington, Alaska, International

This is Evan’s first season working for Alpine Ascents. He brings a decade of experience as an instructor for the National Outdoor Leadership School, where he worked 140 weeks as a climbing, mountaineering and backcountry ski course leader. He was also a program supervisor for three winters at the NOLS Teton Valley Branch. Most recently, Evan worked as a Field Safety Coordinator for the United States Antarctic Program, guiding scientists and conducting field training courses on Ross Island and in the Trans Antarctics.

Equally content on skis, in rock shoes, or donning crampons and mountain boots, Evan has climbed extensively in the Western United States. His preference is for long, classic, adventure climbs. He has led numerous expeditions in Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Alaska, Washington, Antarctica, India, New Zealand, Argentina, as well as British Columbia’s Coast Range and Southern Columbias.

When not climbing or skiing, Evan tinkers on his live in Sprinter van, spends time with his girlfriend and enjoys long coffee sessions accompanied by cribbage, chess, scrabble and of course a pile of guidebooks. Evan is excited to tie in with you!

  • Staying Hydrated in the Backcountry

    Sometimes the harsh environment encountered in mountaineering can make even the simplest tasks difficult. Staying hydrated is a perfect example – something that is among the most banal of tasks in the lowcountry can become exceedingly complicated in a cold, snowy environment. When all available water is locked up in solid form as snow or […]
