Aaron learned how to snowboard on an icy hill in Northeastern Pennsylvania. After high school and a brief stint in British Columbia, he found a home in Jackson Wyoming where he currently lives and works year round as a guide and avalanche educator for for Exum Mountain Guides and The American Avalanche Institute. Aaron has splitboard descents all across the western hemisphere including unrepeated splitboard descents on Mount Foraker (17,402' Alaska Range), Mount Hunter (14,573' Alaska Range), The Gilkey Tower (12,360' Tetons), and Pico Polaco (5,995m, Andes).
In the future, Aaron hopes to explore the lesser traveled peaks of Asia, Antarctica, and areas above the Arctic Circle with his splitboard and is, as one of his friends put it, "on a mission to splitboard in all the best alpine climbing venues". He is currently pursuing IFMGA certification.
When not in the snow Aaron enjoys long, adventurous alpine rock routes with short approaches and JRR Tolkien books. He is in the process of writing a guidebook titled "Aaron's Super Sarcastic Spot-on Book of Directions". Look for it in your local gearshop sometime in the next 20 years.
