Steve Banks is an IFMGA mountain guide based right here in Crested Butte, CO. Steve’s IFMGA certification means he can (and does!) guide across the globe, and he guides all the different disciplines including ski mountaineering, rock climbing, ice climbing, avalanche education, and more. Learn more about Steve’s childhood growing up in an active outdoors family (indeed, his brother is also a guide) that led him to becoming a guide. Wondering about skiing in Iceland? Japan? Chamonix? What it takes to become a guide? – then listen up, this is one episode you won’t want to miss. Normally, I shoot for a 30 minute episode, but this one went a little longer because the mountains are interesting, and that’s why so many of us choose to live in Crested Butte.
