Growing up in NH, surrounded by the outdoors, has shaped me into the person I am today. From a young age, I was always outside and found my passion for climbing and skiing. I love the places it takes me, the challenge of it, and the friendship/partnerships that have formed as a result. When I have free time, you will find me seeking out these adventures far off the beaten path in the beauty of the mountains.

I feel very fortunate to have been working in the outdoor industry my whole working career and love that I can share my passion for the outdoors with others. Being on the Alta Group team gives me the opportunity to work with an amazing group of like-minded individuals while being able to travel in the most beautiful corner of the country! I call Bellingham WA home now where I live with my wife Hannah.

Justin: Yo Scott, what did the Sierra Mountain Guide trip report say on their last update? 

Me: Looks like the ice is forming and hike is filled in and packed down so no need for show shoes… but a weird warming trend coming through…
