Collin studied Finance at Northern Michigan University (Go Cats!) in the mighty UP, then moved to Jackson Hole in 2018 for a gap summer before getting the dreaded “real” job. He got his first taste of whitewater on the Snake River in Jackson, where he guided trips for 3 seasons before landing a position with MFRE in 2022.
In the winter Collin is a coach at Jackson Hole Ski Club’s Freeski Program and spends as much time on the mountain as possible. He is a favorite among all the kids and also adults alike! Collin is a Wilderness First Responder (WFR), Swiftwater Rescue Technician and an expert tailgate taco chef.
