Chris grew up in Woodland Colorado. Being a native Coloradan, he has spent his entire life enjoying the outdoors recreating. He began guiding in 2004 for Lakota, and has been here ever since. During the winter months, he works at Beaver Creek Ski Patrol with his rescue dog Luna, one of the few places that you can have your dog at work. When not rafting or kayaking, he also enjoys skiing and snowmobiling in the Colorado backcountry.
