Casey grew up skiing in the north east and has always been motivated and inspired by mountains both snowy and rocky. After moving to Colorado in 2009, he quickly found his passion for backcountry skiing, ski mountaineering, and avalanche study and has been working his way through the guiding and avalanche education industries ever since. Casey has been a rock, rafting, and backcountry ski guide in the southwest for 8 years, is pursuing full AMGA certification as a Ski and Rock Guide, and is a certified AIARE Level 1 Instructor. In between teaching AIARE courses and guiding for other companies, he holds down a full time job as the Program Director and Head Guide for the Air Force Academy’s Outdoor Adventure Program, taking military members and their families out rock and ice climbing, whitewater rafting, mountaineering, and of course, on backcountry ski tours and hut trips. Casey is passionate about teaching others the skills they need to stay safe and have fun in the mountains, and loves to share his time both personally and professionally with folks who just want to have fun in the snow and get out into the wild.
