About Dan Hohl

Dan grew up in the powder-starved wasteland of Southern California, where nobody owns a ski
touring setup but seemingly everybody owns a convertible and tiny dog. Fortunately, his parents
had an old A-frame ski cabin in the Sierra Nevada’s, and that is where Dan’s dad taught him to
ski by abandoning him atop runs far beyond a 3-year old’s capabilities. After surviving this trial
by fire, Dan attended the University of California, Berkeley where he was introduced to rock
climbing and ski touring. It was during this time that any semblance of a straight-and-narrow
career path was lost.
Under the guise of continuing his education, Dan completed a Master of Science at the
University of Utah, writing a thesis on the relationship between climbing, environmental
advocacy, and climate change. He promptly moved to Colorado and dove into the American
Mountain Guides Association certification process and continued his avalanche education
through the American Institute of Avalanche Research and Education.
Dan has guided rock and alpine climbs all over the Rockies, Southwest desert, and in the North
Cascades. In the spring time Dan answers Alaska’s calling and guides an expedition up the West
Buttress of Denali. He has ski guided throughout Colorado and is an equal opportunity powder
hound whether it be hippy turns in low angle meadows or the steep couloirs of the Tetons.
When Dan is not on the job, he can be found scheming over Caltopo, consuming potentially
unhealthy amounts of coffee, falling off of sport climbs, and attempting without success to set
the perfect skin track.
