Lewis Ainsworth Hard Ice Guide

Lewis Ainsworth

Born and raised in the winterless north (Auckland), Lewis headed South in his early 20's and quickly found his calling climbing in the Southern Alps while attending University in Christchurch.

General mountain marauding quickly led to an interest in guiding and Lewis got his first dose of the guiding life as a ‘Glacier Slug’ on the rainy and temperate Fox Glacier.

A couple of seasons working on ski fields in the Southern Lakes and more recently high mountain guiding and instructing have reinforced his commitment to the outdoor lifestyle.

Currently based in Aoraki Mt Cook working primarily for Alpine Guides Ltd.
