Growing up surrounded by the soaring peaks of the Swiss Alps it’s easy to understand how Crest has held a lifetime passion for the mountains and consequently became a guide. Skiing and climbing are simply part of life for the Swiss and Crest is no exception.
In his formative years, Crest passionately perused alpine ski racing and today he has the same zeal for backcountry skiing that he once reserved for the racecourse. Whether on alpine touring gear, telemark skis or a snowboard Crest’s ear-to-ear grin remains the same when searching out long and deep powder runs. In the warmer months Crest is drawn to the ever-present challenges and tremendous reward provided by rock climbing. Crest’s casual, steady and caring demeanor has a way of bringing out the best in people; from never-evers to seasoned veterans.
Based in Salt Lake City, Crest is on track to become an IFMGA (international) mountain guide. Crest lives with his wife Rachel and young daughters Ela and Yara where they do their absolute best exploring the vast and diverse Utah landscape.
