About Robin

Hello everyone. Welcome to my website. I post current mountain conditions, current events, mountain and scenic tours offered throughout the year and various other things.

Your Fun Guide

See ya on the slopes!

Robin’s love for the outdoors began as a child. Born and raised in southern California, her outdoor experiences started with family outings including camping trips, hiking, and bicycling adventures.

As she grew older, her passion grew more towards the mountains. She headed north to California State University, Chico. Her professional career with recreation began here and in 1990 she received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Recreation Administration.

Her experiences include working for the U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, and California State Park System. She is a W.E.A. (Wilderness Education Association) certified guide, Avalanche I and II certified, EMT-B (Emergency Medical Technician), Siskiyou County Sheriff Search and Rescue Member and continues to guide groups in a variety of outdoor activities. Additionally she has worked for many outdoor programs doing research, planning, and leading activities and trips. For the past several years Robin has worked as an instructor in the public school system.

Currently, she is a mountain and backcountry guide, step-on guide for bus and private scenic tours throughout the Mt. Shasta area. Tours are customized according to interests and requests.

Mt. Shasta has been her home for many years and has given her the opportunity to practice and perfect the backcountry skills needed as an outdoor professional and wilderness guide. Robin looks forward to sharing her knowledge, instruction, and experience for safe and fun adventure in the Mt. Shasta area.

Simply put, if you are looking to HAVE FUN, contact Robin today and reserve your favorite tour or order the book. The book compliments her guided tours!
