About

Elevation Mountain Guides is run by International licensed Mountain Guide Ian Fowler.

Ian grew up in the Lakes District in the UK, and learnt to love the outdoors with his parents there. He started skiing aged 3 and climbing just a few years later when he was 8. Family holidays took him on many trips to the Alps to hike and ski. After getting a degree in Sport and Exercise Science, from the University of Birmingham, Ian went to work in New Zealand starting a none profit working with people with disabilities in the outdoors. Whilst there he also met his wife, an American, followed her back to the United States and trained and qualified as an American Mountain Guide (IFMGA). In the USA he worked as a ski, rock, and alpine guide, avalanche educator and ski patroller.

When not out working Ian likes nothing more than spending time with his family (2 daughters and wife) whether out on a family adventure or cooking pizza and watching a movie.
