Mark Falender

Mark began climbing and skiing in the Elk Mountains outside Aspen, Colorado, as a teenager. Quickly addicted and always eager, he perfected the theory that "school should never get in the way of your education" - expeditions to South America, Europe, and Southeast Asia became part of his high school curriculum. While completing a Geography degree from the University of Colorado, Mark guided rock and alpine climbing in the summer and taught avalanche education and ski mountaineering courses in the winter. Since then, the days without either climbing shoes or ski boots on have been few and far between- Mark works as a ski patroller and avalanche educator in the winter and a full-time mountain guide in the summer. In addition to RMI, Mark also guides for Exum Mountain Guides in Grand Teton National Park and runs climbing and outdoor education programs for Aspen Youth Experience and the Aspen School District.

Mark is a fully certified and internationally licensed IFMGA/AMGA Mountain Guide. Experience includes extensive climbing and mountaineering throughout the western United States, the Italian Dolomites, Southeast Asia, and South America, as well as ski descents throughout the Western US, Alaska, and Europe. Mark works as a ski patroller and avalanche educator at Aspen/Snowmass in the winter and as a full-time mountain guide in the summer. He guides for Exum Mountain Guides and Rainier Mountaineering, Inc. Mark also manages climbing, canyoneering, and outdoor education programs for several organizations, is a qualified AIARE 1 and AIARE 2 Avalanche Education Course Leader, and is an American Avalanche Association Certified Instructor.
