  • Bio Info:

    Stephen Koch is a professional speaker, climber, snowboarder and mountain guide and is a pioneer in the field of Snowboard Mountaineering, a term he coined. His list of alpine ascents and descents include some of the most notable firsts anywhere in the world, most of which have never been repeated. He is the first person to snowboard all the major Teton Peaks in Wyoming, and the first and only person to snowboard on all Seven Summits, the highest peak on each continent.

    Koch is a member of the American Alpine Club and professional mountain guide for over 20 years. He has been featured in Outside, Men's Journal, and Sports Illustrated. Appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, MSNBC and OLN.

    He is an author of articles for Alpinist Magazine, Transworld Snowboarding Magazine, Snowboarder, Mountain Zone.com, Men's Journal Magazine and American Alpine Journal. His photography work has been published in Men's Journal Magazine, Outside Magazine, National Geographic Adventure Magazine, American Alpine Journal, and Alpinist Magazine.

    During his speaking presentations Stephen shares the lessons he learned from life on the edge, where he spent over 20 years climbing and snowboarding unprecedented new routes in the world’s great ranges.

    Koch’s speaking engagements and seminars enable people to feel the fear, motivation, and inspiration involved in risk management when one’s life is at stake. This perspective translates into a clearer understanding and appreciation of risk and a new found dedication to risk management in the work environment.

    Stephen loves spending time in the mountains with his sons, skiing, snowboarding, camping and fishing. The extreme aspect of his life in the mountains currently is the occasional on snow diaper change.
