Peter Ramos grew up in Reno, NV with the Sierras in his backyard. In 1984 he began adventuring in the mountains when his mom took him skiing at the young age of 2. In 1990 he started climbing competitively in indoor climbing competitions. It was at 14 years old when Peter landed his first guiding job, teaching summer camps out of Donner Summit, CA.
Peter left Reno the day after he graduated high school and moved to Bozeman, MT. He attended Montana State University and eventually graduated with a Bachelors degree in Nursing (BSN-RN) in 2009. Over those years he continued to guide for various organizations and learned to speak Spanish while climbing throughout South America doing nursing projects. During that time, he also earned the following certifications; Wilderness EMT-B, Advanced Wilderness Life Support (AWLS), Adult Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), and Avalanche Level 3.
He has traveled throughout the world as an Expedition Nurse, carrying out both nursing and guiding responsibilities. When Peter is not expedition nursing, he is working as a community health nurse in the local community health centers.
Peter Ramos’ current focus is to complete the AMGA requirements necessary to become an IFMGA certified guide. He is currently rock guide certified and has his aspirant ski and alpine certificates.
Peter is a valuable asset to any mountain adventure, given his guiding history, mountain knowledge, and nursing background.
