Ambassador Profile: John


Where do you live?
We’re in the Pacific Northwest, far enough from the city to feel like we’re in the mountains, but close enough we can commute for work.

Top 3 things we should know about you?

  • I’m a dad first, then a husband, then an adventurer, than everything else.
  • I’d rather be safe and have fun than get a summit.
  • Life is risky. Having a life is about managing risk to accomplish your goals.

Favorite aspect of snowshoeing?
I love the silence broken only by the soft whoosh of snow under my ‘shoes. However, that’s pretty rare with three Junior Ambassadors.

Favorite drink while snowshoeing?
Hot cocoa with Seattle Distilling Coffee Liqueur.

Favorite trail snack?
M&Ms with Almonds

Dream snowshoe trip?
Helicopter into the high mountains on the South Island of New Zealand.
