Born in the Province of New Brunswick, shortly after, the family moved across the boarder to Madawaska, Maine. He grew up ski racing in Eastern Canada and that’s what brought on his obsession for the mountains 365 days a year. Mike received his IFMGA Mountain Guide License in 2014 becoming the 96th American to receive their pin. His passion for guiding translates to his personal endeavors in steep skiing and alpine climbing. Mike lives full time in Aosta, Italy with his wife Elena.
The expedition to the Matterhorn was my second trip with Alpine Ascents, and it more than lived up to my expectations. The guides were excellent, the climbing was fantastic. This was an excellent trip that only served to further Alpine Ascents standards.
