Leader



(Email this person.)

J. R. has been carving turns on East Coast hard pack since he was 5. After a brief stint of alpine ski racing in college, he took up backcountry skiing to escape the crowds of on-piste skiing. He's an experience climber, an Eagle Scout, and is AAIRE Level I certified. He enjoys AT, telemark, and raising two of his own mountain-porters-in-training.

Co-Leader


(Email this person.)

Co-leading trips with AMC-NH Ski Committee since 2015. Grew up alpine skiing the Whites, skied the Greens during college, spent few years in the Rockies, and move back East in 2008. Added tele to the mix 10+ years ago and jumped on the AT bandwagon in 2014. Keeps looking to ski lines that he didn't know existed when he was a kid.
