David Nesis

Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, adventuring in the mountains became an early habit of mine. Following this passion, I moved out to southwest Colorado in 2010 after graduating from Western Washington University with a degree in Business Finance.

Deciding not to enter an office life, I began to call Telluride, CO my home, and discovered my love for spending extended time and sharing experiences with others in the mountains. I joined Mountain Trip as a guide on Aconcagua during the 2014-15 season, and since then have been guiding year-round from our backyard mountains to Denali, Alaska. I currently live in the super top secret valley of Ophir, CO guiding rock and ice locally in the San Juan Mountains and spending much time skiing and climbing out my back door. I’m also very passionate about teaching outdoor education to the youth of the Telluride area and coach the Telluride High School rock climbing team. I look forward to getting out in the mountains with you all!
