About Chris Martin

Chris Martin has been exploring since the day skis landed on his feet. As an inlet to adventure, skiing grew the seed. Chris is inspired by sharing and teaching the skills necessary to achieve your dreams of a lifetime in the mountains.  Chris has pursued his personal passions as well as guided climbing and skiing from South America to Alaska.  Chris Martin achieved IFMGA Mountain Guide Licensure in 2022. Chris has gained experience in rescue, working with the National Park Service through Search and Rescue on Denali. Knowing the reality of life in the mountains has allowed the necessity of humility, daily intention, and driving a lifelong passion to teach risk assessment and calculated mountain travel. He is based in Crested Butte, CO and works full time for Irwin Guides. When he’s not guiding he is enjoying his life at home with his wife Ashley and dog Asa while pursuing personal goals throughout the mountain ranges he’s drawn to.  Along with being a fully Certified IFMGA Mountain guide, Chris holds a Pro 2 avalanche forecasting certificate and is an AIARE Course Leader.
