    Guide: Washington

    Sean grew up in New Hampshire, where a love for mountain sports took root, as well as a passion for teaching. He has since ventured and worked around the U.S. skiing, climbing, paddling, and connecting with many of its diverse landscapes. In the winter Sean returns to New England where he guides climbers on Mount Washington and the surrounding waterfall ice. When not working you’ll find him on skis or on a slackline when the snow melts.
