Beyond experience, certification and passion, CAPOW! Guides are leaders of a growing community; a community that believes in sharing specialized mountain travel knowledge with recreational enthusiasts.
The team (Caposse) is a group of backcountry mentors that have three very important things in common:
A Capow! guide’s approach is more than “I lead, you follow,” instead, they inspire and educate steps through the PROcess of decision making and how it applies to the real mountain environment. They are backcountry mentors that lead by setting an example, stimulate the conversation and tailor to their guests desires for higher learning and experiences. This is our team, this is their backyard. Do you want to come along for the ride?
Joe used to be a freeride mountain bike professional. Competing in Red Bull rampage and staring in freeride movies…but you’d never know it. It’s important to us to let you know all this because Joe will never tell you. Actually, maybe it’s not important at all… because that’s not why we love Joe (except Marty, he won’t shut up about it and it’s getting kind of annoying). If you’re lucky enough to get on a trip with Joe you’ll find out why everyone loves him. Unfortunately we don’t see Joe on a full time basis. Joe mixes his time in the winter with guiding and working a real job in marketing. In fact Joe created this website, so if you see anything that needs fixing give him a hollar.
