Ben has been climbing, skiing, and exploring the mountains for over 18 years and professionally guiding for over 10 years. He is enthusiastic about big multi pitch ice climbs, huge days moving in the mountains, and exposed ridges on high peaks. What started out as a way to skip classes turned into an obsession. Every chance he gets, Ben is out exploring the backcountry of Colorado. Ben also volunteers with the Colorado Mountain Club and typically teaches a few classes for them every year. He is currently working towards achieving his IFMGA certification and hopes to share his experience and expertise with his clients.
“I love to teach climbing because there is no better feeling than watching and helping someone overcome an obstacle to succeed. The mountains are the best and I feel very privileged to be able to work in them!”
When Ben isn’t climbing, he can be found backcountry skiing, drinking way too much coffee, or spending time with his wife and two sons exploring the mountains.
