    Guide: Washington

    Tommy started with us in 2019, coming from Oklahoma while completing his M.Ed in Natural Resources. In college he found his passion for the mountains and committed to climbing throughout the western US and Canada. Before coming to Alpine Ascents, Tommy cut his teeth as a climbing and canyoneering guide in the sandstone slot canyons around Moab, UT. He now splits his time between the North Cascades in the summers and northwest Montana during the winters where he works as a professional ski patroller. Tommy is a firm believer in the powers of outdoor experiences, hilarity, and good Mexican food. When not climbing, you can find him exploring the incredible skiing in Glacier National Park, attempting to learn how to mountain bike, or simply kicking his feet back to relax.
