Peter Biskind

Guide: Alaska

Pete Comes to AAI with a diverse guiding background including; rock, rivers, sailboats and, currently, skis. As a Midwestern boy, eager to play in the mountains, Pete taught himself rope skills by aid-climbing trees and building zip lines in the forest. His first guiding experience comes from rock climbing, whitewater rafting trips and ski patrolling. He loves to teach Swiftwater and Avalanche rescue classes to help people hone their skills so they can travel safely in the mountains. He currently spends 11 months a year on snow as a guide and avalanche forecaster sharing time between Alaska, New Zealand’s Southern Alps, Antarctica, and Japan’s wonderland of snow: Hokkaido. When he is not in the mountains Pete finds time on the beach or with family.
