Within a few minutes of meeting Adam it will be apparent that his enthusiasm for skiing in the mountains is infectious.  Adam fell in love with backcountry skiing while at college at the University of Colorado, and stoked his powder skiing passion while living in Alta shortly there after. Whether seeking out steep descents in the big mountains or enjoying powder days with friends Adam can never seem to get enough.  Adam is based out of Kelly, Wyoming where he works professionally as a guide with Exum Mountain Guides winter and summer. In the spring he works for the Alaska Mountaineering School instructing mountaineering courses and guiding ascents throughout the Alaska Range.
