Nancy Bockino grew up in the mountains of Idaho, Montana and Washington. She began climbing, backcountry skiing and working as a field ecologist in the early 1990’s. Nancy moved from the Cascades to Jackson Hole in 2000 and fell in love with the mountains, whitebark pine trees and the local community. Nancy keeps quite busy working as a guide for Exum, an ecologist caring for whitebark pine in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, an professional avalanche instructor, and an EMT and Wilderness First Responder. Nancy also guides for International Alpine Guides in the Eastern Sierra Range in California, where she loves to spend the spring climbing and skiing in the alpine with her partner Colin and living in their van. Nancy has climbed and skied in the Tetons and Wind Rivers for 20 years. She has climbed in Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Alberta, British Columbia, Yosemite, Red Rocks, Indian Creek, Joshua Tree and beyond. She loves to ski in Canada and the many amazing mountain ranges surrounding the Tetons including the Gros Ventre, Salt, Wyoming, Snake River, and Absaroka Ranges. Nancy has a teaching certificate and a graduate degree in Ecology and Botany. Gratefully so, Nancy spends nearly every single day in the mountains. She has a passion for sharing the experience of the blissful freedom, happiness and empowerment that comes with knowing how to safely and respectfully travel through and play in the mountains.
