UIAGM High Mountain Guide Snowboard / Splitboard & Ski Instructor

David is a fully qualified ISTD/UIAGM/IFMGA High Mountain guide and is originally from Newcastle. David started snowboarding in Chatel nearly 30 years ago and his passion is for splitboarding, riding big, technical freeride lines and snow science.

David has opened up first ascent routes in Patagonia and recently guided climbing parties in the high peaks of Kyrgyzstan. We are super thrilled to have David on the roster for 2017 – his commitment to the sport and passion for the mountains is infectious.

A Rider Social trip with David can involve learning in-depth about snowpack and avalanche risk whilst also getting tips on perfecting your frontside 360’s in the backcountry.
