AMGA/IFMGA Mountain Guide

Matt Farmer

Matt Farmer (aka “Farmer”) is an IFMGA/UIAGM certified mountain guide and has a solid background in all disciplines of climbing and skiing. He is an instructor of guide training for the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA), is a veteran of many Denali expeditions, and holds a Level 3 avalanche certification. These qualifications, along with his B.S. in Geology, with which he says he can “B.S. about geology as long as you want,” form a core of competence which ensures a fun time in the mountains whatever the itinerary. Farmer and his wife (and SMG guide) Margaret Wheeler split their time between the Wood River Valley and Europe.
