Aaron Zanto grew up playing in the mountains of Colorado. While completing his degree in Physical Science, he realized he preferred spending his time learning about and playing in natural environments. He used his student loan money to pay for his first mountaineering expedition, Aconcagua. In 1999, he moved to Lake Tahoe and since then hasn’t stopped exploring the High Sierra and other ranges at home and abroad. His passion is high altitude granite, deep powder, and long dusty trails. He spends the majority of his free time climbing, skiing, and exploring with his wife and daughter. The rest of his time is spent fighting fires in Northern California.
