Adrian is Pinned!

Adrian Ballinger (Alpenglow’s owner and lead guide) just found out that he has passed his IFMGA certification! We are in Chamonix, about to go out and celebrate the culmination of almost four years of courses and exams. This makes him one of a very select few American guides with full certification. Have a vin chaud for us!
