So, You Want to be a Guide?

A thoroughly enjoyable piece penned by Redline Guide Mike Maciel. In 2019 I stepped away from a successful sixteen year career in the corporate world of insurance to pursue things that were more meaningful to me. For most of my tenure, the money I earned in exchange for my time had helped me to achieve my goals and build a great life. Eventually though, the ends […]

Jess Kowalski Joins the Team

With Arlette being on “vacation” for a bit (she’ll be back eventually), we’ve brought in new team member and experienced guide Jess Kowalski to help out (along with Deb) with some of the women’s-only stuff that we like to offer now and then.

Guides Do Marry

It’s happened before. One minute they’re guiding, living a bachelor’s dream life out of their van, the next minute they getting swept off their feet. It stands to reason, though, when you have a sharp looking crew like our team of guides. This time at the altar was Redline Guide Álvaro Marques, and with him his lovely now-wife, Suzy.

Ready to Respond

That’s what Redline Guide Deb Dunn just did, she re-certified after some time away from it. We’re here to help her celebrate. Deb traveled to Vermont for this SOLO class, but she told us it […]

This can be done supported (people can help), self-supported (you stash […]

Our newest Redline Guide Mike Maciel has been very hard at work as he develops as a mountain guide with Redline Guiding (not just a porter). This development happens in bits and pieces over time, with experience giving context. One of the major bits one needs to overcome is the required medical training.
