Robby Young, Mountain Guide, RMI Expeditions

Robby grew up ski racing in the hills of northern Michigan. Upon graduating from the University of Michigan with a degree in Geology, he promptly moved west in pursuit of big mountains and deep powder. Over the past several years, Robby has worked in Colorado as an environmental geologist and currently spends his winters working as a professional ski patroller and avalanche educator in Utah. His enthusiasm and passion for skiing, climbing, and photography have resulted in numerous adventures in beautiful places ranging from the high peaks of Alaska to the rugged peaks of the Peruvian Andes.
