Tommy, Guide

Tommy’s most memorable moments in life have occurred when he’s been immersed in natural surroundings. A lifetime of pursuing outdoor activities eventually lead him to Lake Tahoe, the Sierra and beyond.

An enthusiastic outdoorsman, Tommy enjoys exploring and learning everything possible about nature and sharing it with others. Whether training to compete in adventure races, summiting a new peak in the Sierra or joining the Tahoe Search and Rescue team – Tommy is constantly seeking new ways to challenge himself and those around him.

Tommy is most comfortable, and content, when engaged in outdoor adventures. Hiking, mountain biking, camping, kayaking in the summer or snowshoeing and skiing in the winter are among his favorites.

Tommy is passionate about protecting the Tahoe ecosystem, it’s myriad of wild inhabitants and educating those who come to visit. The wilderness is home to Tommy and he welcomes the opportunity to show it to all friends, both old and new!
