Pete comes to H2O with a diverse guiding background, from rock to rivers, sailboats to skis. As a Midwestern boy eager to play in the mountains, Pete taught himself rope skills by aid-climbing trees and building zip lines in the forest. From his first guiding experience with rock climbing, Pete found more ways to engage people of all walks of life while whitewater rafting and ski patrolling. He loves to teach Swiftwater, Avalanche, and Mountain Craft classes to help clients hone their skills and travel safely in the backcountry. He currently spends nine months a year on snow working as an avalanche forecaster and mountain guide in New Zealand, Antarctica, Japan, and Alaska. When he is not teaching, listening, and laughing in the mountains, Pete finds time for the beach and family.
