About Guided Exposure

Guided Exposure was founded to inspire individuals to challenge themselves, to progress, and to succeed in the most spectacular mountain environments. We offer splitboarding, ski touring, AIARE Avalanche Courses, rock climbing, and mountaineering courses and trips. Each of our trips and courses have been carefully crafted to gradually introduce new skills, develop your ability, and apply a climbing mindset while instilling our love of lofty exposed peaks or riding down them.

Ian McConnell

Hailing from the ice coast, Ian’s slowly been working his way westward over the last decade, finally settling in Northwest Washington after running out of landmass and conveniently discovering what he deems the best skiing in the lower 48. Ian’s love for sliding on snow has taken him all over the world, and many of his happiest memories have been on the skin track. His greatest joy is facilitating experiences for folks who share his reverence for mountains and love for sliding on snow.
