Greg Harms has been living the never-ending winter for 27 years. Last year, he spent 220 days on snow, and a majority of those days included a helicopter. Since 1990, Harms has been guiding and teaching skiing in the the world’s great mountain ranges. As a Level III avalanche forecaster, Wilderness First Responder, Harms puts his clients’ safety first. As a fully certified PSIA ski and snowboard instructor, Harms can offer helpful tips on ski technique when skiing with clients on steep Alaska faces and around rocky features in the Andes. And being fluent in Spanish helps Southern America trips run smooth. At 6’5” and 225 pounds, Harms is often described as a gentle giant. Aside from skiing, his greatest passion is leading clients on trips of a lifetime. Harms grew up in the shadow of Mount Hood and ski raced through high school before moving to Lake Tahoe to teach skiing at Heavenly. There, he met the ski school director for Hotel Portillo. At the age of 20, after a season of commercial fishing in Alaska, Harms headed south to Portillo, where he taught skiing, freeskied and fell in love with the Andes. Harms became friends with the head of the heli-ski program and began his heli-ski guide career in South America. Harms guided private clients in Alaska before joining the guide team at Chugach Powder Guides. Along with Tommy Moe and Mike Overcast, Harms helped pioneer heli skiing in the Tordrillo Mountain Range and co-founded Tordrillo Mountain Lodge (where he remains a lead guide). Down south, he began guiding for Valle Nevado, where he met his South America partner, Miguel Ledda. Four years ago, Harms launched his own company, Third Edge Heli.
ERIC BALKEN A native of Salt Lake City, Eric spends most of his winter skiing in and around the Wasatch Mountains.

Since then, he's made regular appearances in most major ski magazines. When not playing in the mountains, Eric runs the environmental non-profit organization Glen Canyon Institute.
