Benjamin Gottlieb


Ben has spent the last 20 years becoming an expert in crafting and facilitating amazing adventures in the outdoors for his clients. His coaching and teaching background mixed with his extensive experience in the field of emergency services makes him uniquely qualified to be able to introduce you to split boarding or skiing in the backcountry, but also help you progress to reach your true potential. After 15 years of splitting his time between winter in Aspen and summers as an Ocean Lifeguard in Los Angeles, Ben now lives in Aspen year round. He recently became a member of the Aspen Volunteer Fire Department and spends most of his free time with his wife Laura and two little girls Rocky and Soleil.
