About Paul Rachele
Paul is a midwest transplant who drifted to the mountains after college and never really left. Climbing has taken Paul from the deserts of southeast California to the glaciers of central Alaska and everywhere in between. Some of Paul’s most memorable climbing experiences are the Cassin Ridge on Denali and a solo, nighttime ascent of the Hossack-McGowan on the Grand Teton. In the winter, Paul enjoys skiing and ice climbing throughout the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. His most memorable descent was skiing the Grand Teton in boot-top powder, and his favorite run is the Do-Its on Teton Pass. In addition to guiding year-round for Jackson Hole Mountain Guides, Paul manages the Winter Program and the Jackson Hole Branch. He is an AMGA/IFMGA Mountain Guide and has completed a Level III Avalanche Course through the American Avalanche Institute.
