Skylar Holgate was born and raised in Durango, Colorado. For the last 15 years, he has been living in a perpetual state of winter, moving between Silverton, Colorado, various parts of Alaska, Malalcahuello, Chile, and San Carlos Bariloche, Argentina. He works as a guide and snow safety specialist in Alaska and Colorado, and is the lead guide and operator at the backcountry retreat Bonnie Belle Cabin. Down in the Southern Hemisphere Skylar is the head guide at both South America Snow Sessions (SASS) and Sled Chile. It’s no wonder that Skylar spends between 250 and 270 days on the snow every year.
