The end of October brought snow and winter like weather to a big part of the west including Moab, UT where American Mountain Guides from around the country and overseas gathered for our annual meeting and gathering of our professional tribe.
While Moab, UT even received a few inches of wet snow one morning, it was a fun-filled week of catching up with old friends, making new ones, getting to brush up on new techniques and guiding skills with daily skills clinics, some climbing and mountain biking in the desert sun, and of course lots of beer and good times.
This year’s AMGA Annual Meeting was also a memorial and tribute to our fallen comrade, Craig Luebben, an incredible and irreplaceable guide, teacher, climber, inventor, father, and husband whom our small community will dearly miss.
As well as enjoying the festivities and a great main event slideshow on alpine climbing in Alaska from veteran Jack Tackle…..CBMG’s own Mike Bromberg, was awarded his Rock Guide Certification. He is now only one exam away from full IFMGA/UIAGM status…way to go Mike !
