About your host

I am an avid mountaineer and outdoor lover. I grew up climbing the Alps and completed my first 4000 meter ascent at age 9. I worked for Patagonia and managed the Lowe Alpine Mountain Guide Team in Chamonix and Annecy, France were I also was an expert in the mountain gear field. I have taught numerous people to rock climb, snowboard, and ascend mountains over the last 20 years. I have a patient,…

What we’ll do

We will leave the picturesque Sierra valley with our backpacks filled with great food that I provide, and head to the Buttes for a stellar day of hiking or snow shoeing. The goal is to summit the Sierra Buttes fire lookout at 8 587 feet. I will help you check your gear (send a picture a couple days before) and I can tell you where to rent any necessary items if needed. On the big day we will meet…

What I’ll provide

Food
I will provide a power breakfast the day of the hike and a picnic lunch. Everything is organic and gluten free.

What to bring

You will need: a comfortable heavy duty backpack, hiking boots, snow shoes (depending on conditions), warm breathable layers of clothing, a fleece, a jacket, gloves, a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen (snow reflects!), a water bottle, and hiking poles.

Where you'll be

We will backcountry climb and hike in a area that few people ever get to experience, especially in the winter. The views and the calm are spectacular! Unlike treks in Europe or the Tahoe/Donner basin, this backcountry is still very wild and barely traveled. The pure landscape and challenge of ascending a peak that few people have done is part of what drew me to this area- and I am certain this aspect will win your heart too. Hike back in time!

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 10 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age. Guests should be in good physical condition and ready to walk for a total of 5 to 6 hours with a one hour break at the top for lunch. Children in carry…

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

What to bring

You will need: a comfortable heavy duty backpack, hiking boots, snow shoes (depending on conditions), warm breathable layers of clothing, a fleece, a jacket, gloves, a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen (snow reflects!), a water bottle, and hiking poles.
