John Barkausen

Despite grow­ing up in the flat sub­urbs of Chica­go, John gained a love for wild places ear­ly in his life. After earn­ing a degree in Wilder­ness Lead­er­ship from Prescott Col­lege, John began turn­ing that love into a career. He has worked through­out the coun­try and inter­na­tion­al­ly, guid­ing rock climb­ing, ice climb­ing, ski­ing and avalanche cours­es, sea kayak­ing, hik­ing, and even a few bik­ing trips. He has spent much of this time teach­ing adven­tur­ous sports to high school and col­lege aged stu­dents. As an out­door instruc­tor and guide, John strives to get to know each stu­dent so that he can pro­vide unique learn­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties and make sure the adven­ture meets the stu­dent where they are. John has two kids, a love­ly wife, a mild­ly obe­di­ent dog, and they all live in Wenatchee, Washington.
