episode 29 - Justin Lozier
On today’s show I have Justin Lozier. Justin is the Cofounder and Lead Guide for Patagonia Heliski, which is the only heliski operation in the Patagonia region of Argentina. Along with his partner Gabriel Rappoport, Patagonia Heliski offers something truly unique, skiing first descents and unnamed peaks are not uncommon and the opportunity to explore a new frontier of powder skiing is just a little too enticing to resist.
Justin has built his entire adult life around skiing, and when he ventured into the backcountry for the first time 20 years ago, he knew he found his life’s work. In this episode, we’ll dig into the nitty gritty of what it takes to become a guide, what it’s chasing winter into the Southern Hemisphere year around, and the behind the scenes grind of building your own heliski company. Enjoy comrades!
