Ben’s passion for the outdoors was initially sparked by a month long NOLS backpacking course at age 16. He later moved to Colorado to pursue his love for everything outdoors. Ben is an avid climber, backpacker, cyclist, and runner, finding an excuse to spend long days outside for “type 2 fun”. Ben is also the medical training officer of the Alpine Rescue Team, a busy search and rescue team based out of Evergreen, CO. Ben’s passion is sharing knowledge and experiences so that others can have a safe environment of the incredible wilderness available to us both in Colorado, and around the world.
