Guide – Evan Clapper


Evan fell in love with moving over stone as a child in North Carolina. While attending high school in Vermont, he discovered snowboarding. Then quickly moved west to Colorado and earned his first degree in Outdoor Leadership from Colorado Mountain College, logging many days in the mountains in the process. He has worked over a thousand days in the field and has climbed and snowboarded peaks in the Andes, Asia, Europe, New Zealand, Canada and Alaska, including Denali.
Evan is an AMGA single pitch climbing instructor as well as a aspirant ski guide aspirant and AIARE course instructor. He spent time as an EMT in Moab, is part of Grand County’s Search and Rescue Winter Rescue Team, and even found time to attend Colorado Mesa University and earn a second degree in Environmental Science.
