John MacKinnon

John is an AMGA certified Rock and Ski Guide based in Leadville, CO. He migrates to Oregon each spring and summer to guide at Smith Rock State Park, Mt. Hood and many of the other peaks and crags in the Northwest. He has been guiding for TMG since 2008. John spends his falls and winters in Colorado where he guides backcountry skiing, teaches AIARE avalanche safety courses and works as an Outdoor Studies instructor at Colorado Mountain College. When he’s not guiding, John enjoys rock climbing in the desert, reading and running around the Colorado high country with his fiancée and their impulsive blue heeler.
