Gareth Tate

Gareth splits his year between the east coast and west coast but calls Asheville, NC home. He grew up on a goat farm in the foothills of North Carolina and went to college in the mountains where he now lives and plays for "most" of the year. He graduated with a double degree in Wilderness Leadership and Ecology and has since gathered extensive experience leading and organizing outdoor programs and is an instructor in several disciplines such as whitewater kayaking, alpine skiing, swift-water rescue and wilderness lifeguarding. His passions are in expedition creek-boating and adventure racing as well as downhill mountain biking and back-country skiing.
