Danny Ozment
Guide: Mount Rainier, Cascades

Having skied throughout New Mexico and Colorado while growing up, Danny knew early on that his life would somehow have to revolve around living and working in the mountains. As soon as college was over, he began his career as a ski instructor in Colorado and never looked back. Instructing has taken him to several resorts throughout Colorado, Washington, and most recently five seasons in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. After discovering a passion for backcountry skiing 10 years ago, Jackson Hole seemed to be the natural progression for developing skills for ski mountaineering. His addiction for exploring mountain environments and skiing wherever possible has taken Danny to many mountain ranges throughout Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, California, Washington and British Columbia
