Max Strotbeck


Max started guiding in the Cascades in 2016 and has been working in the mountains ever since. Guiding has led him to work in Washington, California, Alaska and Colorado. Max spends the bulk of his year in Colorado, working as a ski guide, avalanche science educator, wilderness medicine instructor, and unpaid professional with Routt County Search And Rescue. As a guide, he enjoys spending time with new clients and teaching people the skills to safely recreate in the mountains and accomplish their goals.
