Steve Hitchcock aka Yeti
Yeti got his name from his college days of running around in the woods unencumbered and completely at home exploring the vast wild mountains, rolling around in the pine needles, climbing trees, and foraging for food. He is an all around outdoor adventurer, enjoying everything from mountain and road biking, climbing and bouldering, orienteering, skiing, surfing, backpacking, trail running and exploring. Yeti is proud to make his home in the Colorado Mountains with his wife and son.
With no borders that can hold him, he has explored the US from Alaska to Florida and most places in between as well as far away places such as Europe, Asia, and Central America. Yeti’s love of the outdoors and extensive training both military and civilian as well as vast experience in the backcountry has allowed him to guide backcountry trips as well as teach at the college level as an Adventure Guide in such subjects as Desert Field Studies, Environmental Issues and Ethics, Land Navigation, Nordic Skiing, Winter Wilderness Survival, Wilderness Survival, Mountain Biking, and the Leave No Trace principles. And how could we ever forget to mention his unwavering devotion to ice cold India Pale Ales!
