Guide – Erin Laine

Born and raised in the potato fields and alpine peaks of Southern Colorado Erin’s passion for the high windy places has been a driving force throughout her life. Working as a professional guide, rescuer, and educator Erin has traveled the world helping to share the value of the mountains. From the bottomless pow of Japan to the windswept ridges of the Andes and the remote magic of the Icelandic West Fjords Erin still holds a special place in her heart for the San Juan Mountains. Erin finds value and passion in exploring new places with close friends and educating people on how to enjoy the awe inspiring mountains responsibly. Erin is a wilderness EMT, an AMGA aspirant ski guide, apprentice alpine guide, AIARE avalanche course instructor, and WFA & WFR instructor.
