Acadia Mountain Guides Climbing School

Christian Helger

Guiding since 2013

After earning a degree in Outdoor Education from the University of New Hampshire, Christian has been committed to pursuing a life of work and play in the mountains. Currently certified as an AMGA Rock Instructor he travels around the country in search of new places, and fun with friends. His goal as an instructor is to provide a challenging new experience to push oneself physically and mentally, while focusing on maximizing fun. Christian takes pride in being a steward of the island, and providing unique experiences to each guest.

Acadia continues to be an annual summer migration, and this will be Christian’s fifth season on the island. Most recently, he was in Salt Lake City dedicating his winter to skiing in the Wasatch mountains, but he has also spent time guiding with AMG in the winter, and Fox Mountain Guides in North Carolina during the spring and fall.
