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?
Kate grew up in a small Colorado mountain town called Vail. You may have heard of it. Naturally, Kate grew up on skis and spent her childhood ski racing. A few years ago, she took a trip to the Blanket Glacier Chalet with some girlfriends. Long story short – she met Marty Schaffer, company policy was broken, and now Kate calls the place home. On the sidelines, she manages a sales team for a tech start-up. The next moment she’ll catch up to the gang on the skin track and lay down some giggleful backcountry turns. Kate is known as the behind-the-scenes secret weapon for CAPOW and nothing short of a badass.
