Nate has been skiing since 1984, climbing since 1994, and guiding since 2004. Over different periods in life he’s been drawn to many different mountain sports, and these have taken him all over the American West and abroad. He now spends winters in Aspen where he works as a ski instructor, resort trainer, and ski guide based out of Aspen Highlands. He moonlights in industrial mountain safety and the rope access industry.
For Nate, the satisfaction of guiding comes through meeting great people and sharing incredible places on a daily basis. He’s constantly striving to make each excursion run seamlessly so each climber and skier walks away with an incredible experience.
