OUR STAFF

Our experienced staff is passionate about getting folks out in the wilderness backpacking, mountain biking, sailing, skiing, and even foraging for wild foods. After all, even when they aren’t working in the field, our staff are out packing the peaks, boating little-known waters, or finding that secret cache of chanterelles.
