Zeb Blais, Mountain Guide, RMI Expeditions

Zeb was born in Vermont’s Green Mountains and has been enjoying the outdoors ever since. He graduated from Boston University with a degree in mechanical engineering, but his passion for big mountains led him west where he now splits his time between the Sierra Nevada and Cascade Ranges. He has climbed and skied mountains throughout North America. When he is not guiding, Zeb teaches avalanche courses and ski patrols at Squaw Valley in California. His spare time usually doesn’t save his feet from ski boots.
