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?
Shane is one of those people that just won’t stop impressing you. On paper he might live the ultimate instagram life. This is what we know (so far): He bases himself out of an airstream at Crystal Mountain during the winter, is accompanied by his beautiful bernese mountain dog named Huxley (@huxley_el_jefe), just wrote a book “Swimming holes in Washington”, he builds treehouses professionally around the globe. Oh ya… and he guides full time. When you’re with Shane you just know you’re getting the best… with the best. He has the cutest house in Seattle, and makes it to the Canadian side of the border as much as possible. We just found out he also used to be a lawyer… apparently this bio will need constant editing, check back soon. SWOOON
