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?
If you think Chris Rubens is cool, well, you should meet the guy he learned it all from. Troy’s pants are also too long for him, but that hasn’t stopped him from having a long career in the mountains. Teaching AST courses to the pros and managing cowboy ski patrollers, Troy’s the kind of guy who will be quietly watching the treetops, communicating with a spotted owl, while the rest of the crew yells obscenities and points their poles at lines they couldn’t actually handle. We don’t like the word legend around here, but we’ll reserve the privilege for an OG like Leahey.
