MEET THE
CAPOSSE

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:

  1. Professional Certification
  2. Personality
  3. Your Back

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? 

We love you already.
