AMGA Ski Guides Course
Greetings from Lofoten, Norway! More about that soon, but I thought that I would quickly share some photos from a continuing education program that I took last month. The AMGA Ski Guides Course is the first in a series of three that trains ski guides on the skills and techniques for guiding in ski touring and ski mountaineering terrain. The course was held in some of my favorite ski terrain, Snoqualmie Pass, and it provided all of the students a great opporunity for both personal and professional growth under the mentorship of AMGA Instructors. Highlights of the course included nearly three meters (9 feet) of snow in a week and the tremendous amounts of shovelling that followed (always good for fitness), lots of storm skiing in beautiful old growth trees, and a chance to get to know a group of really fun guides that I hadn’t crossed paths with before. So, without any more delay, here are some photos!
