Stefan Audolfsson about Jeff Bullock on 57hours

Our guide was great. Troy had the skills, knowledge and drive to make it the perfect day out in the mountains for us all and with his enthusiasm and respect for the surrounding environment he introduced new aspects to the sport to the younger part of the group.

Phil Hess about Jeff Bullock on 57hours

Jeff led us on a perfect tour. We traveled in some fun, challenging terrain, appropriate for the conditions, and Chelsey felt confident with his encouragement and use of the rope to protect short pitches. We would both love to ski with Jeff again on the next trip!

I have always felt safe when in the outdoors with Greg
Jennifer D. about Greg Hill

I live in the area he primarily guides yet he has shown me new areas almost every time we have gone out together. Be it rock climbing or backcountry skiing/snowboarding we always have a great time. He is the best insurance policy I have that makes sure I am safe and have a great time.

Adam is one of the best guides out there
Johnny K. about Adam Zok

Regardless of your goals for a trip you really can’t go wrong hiring him. He has a plethora of knowledge around snow science/avalanche safety as well as tips and tricks around the snow sports industry as he regularly gets out skiing with some of the biggest name athletes in the skiing world.
