Aspen Alpine Guides
Stephen began guiding with Aspen Alpine Guides in 2008 after having moved to Aspen from Switzerland where he spent the prior seven years training and working. He began training under an International Federation of Mountain Guides Association (IFMGA) guide in the Chamonix area with a concentration on glacier travel and crevasse rescue. Stephen continued with that process for the next few years while also concentrating on the skills necessary for hiking on high alpine routes. He now has a fairly comprehensive understanding of many great hut-to-hut tours within Switzerland and the neighboring alp regions, including Austria and Lichtenstein.
