Mountain Sense is a podcast that gets behind the scenes in the world of mountain professionals. Guests include guides, outdoor educators, avalanche forecasters, SAR team members, athletes, trainers, and more. Whether you are a fledgling guide worried about glacial abatement, or a grizzled rope slinger more concerned with personal hairline abatement, or a recreational climber and skier looking to gain some insight and entertainment from the world of mountain guides, or one of the bravest of the brave who put up with our crap as loved ones and partners, this show is worth your time. Joking aside, the bottom line is we all want to have fun in the mountains and come home safely. Mountain Sense is here to dig into the mindset that the top professionals use to achieve that goal, and disseminate it out to a broader audience.
