BIO: Ben Hilley moved to Colorado from Texas in 2008 after completing his mechanical engineering degree at SMU and has been guiding snowmobiling, ski, ATV, and jeep tours throughout the Rocky Mountains ever since. Ben’s interest in high alpine ecosystems and mechanical know-how make him the perfect backcountry jeep guide, and his ability to fix anything often helps out on the trail. He can talk for hours–literally–about backcountry plants and animals, and he may even quiz you after the tour…so be ready! When not guiding jeeps in the summer, Ben spends his time in the mountains, designing and testing ski and snowboard gear for Weston Backcountry.
