    Guide: Alaska

    Growing up in the central part of Washington State afforded Ross endless opportunities to experience the outdoors from a very young age. After a seven year career with the Forest Service in which he worked as a Smokejumper for two of those years, Ross decided to pursue mountain guiding full time. He is currently half way through his formal training in becoming a certified mountain guide. Ross enjoys all means of playing in the mountains and finds satisfaction in sharing the mountain environs with others. He values his experiences in far away places, as well as his time at home in Winthrop, Wa where he lives with his partner and their Labrador Retriever.
