Which aspects of mountaineering and backcountry sports are of most interest to you? -- (Hiking) (Backcountry Skiing) (Ice Climbing) (Rock Climbing) (Backpacking & Camping) ?

I'm most interested in more technical adventures: mountaineering, ice climbing, rock climbing, and backcountry skiing.

What is your level of mountaineering experience or other backcountry skills? -- (Novice) (Beginner) (Intermediate) (Advanced) (Pro)? (Feel free to add some specifics):

Probably advanced advanced to pro. In college, I climbed waterfall ice on top rope, led 5.10 sport, and led ~5.8-9 trad. Until 2007, I was an AMGA certified rock climbing instructor, which required certification in building top rope anchors, managing a site, and rescues. I guided hiking and rock climbing trips in the white mountains in college, guided kids on a 4 week trip in the Sierras (extended backpacking - we hired specialized guides for rock climbing, rafting, and mountaineering), worked for 2 years in outdoor adventure logistics, and worked for 8 months at ski shop in Queenstown, New Zealand. It's been a few years since I did all those activities, but I think I've still got it.
