    Guide: Washington

    Trevor Husted discovered the joy of the mountains at a young age. The landscape of the Pacific Northwest forged in him a unique respect and love for nature. Seeking mountain summits around the world would evolve into a ski mountaineering feat that would help to create a sustained love for skiing and splitboarding. He has had the opportunity to live, travel, and guide all over the world and through this and writing he has been able to share his experiences with others with the hopes of instilling the same admiration for adventure, culture, nature, and empathy that fuels his lust for life. When he’s not climbing he can be found surfing, mountain biking, twiddling on his guitar, cooking for others, or hanging at home in Lake Tahoe. More info can be found at www.trevorhusted.com
