  EverestHistory.com: Skip Horner


Skip Horner has been guiding a wide range of expeditions all over the world for the last three decades. In 1992 after leading a group of clients to the summit of Mt. Everest (9/12/1992), Skip became the first mountaineer to successfully guide clients to the highest peaks on each of the seven continents. Actually, Skip has led 20 ascents of Kilimanjaro, 8 ascents of Mt. Vinson (highest peak in Antarctica) and 5 expeditions to Gunnbjornsfield (highest peak in the Artic). Skip also summited Cho Oyu on 9/29/1996.

In addition to his incredible abilities as a climbing guide, Paddler Magazine nominated Skip as one of the top ‘Paddlers of the 20th Century’. As a rafting guide he led the first descents of 11 major rivers. These rivers include the Yangtze, the Zambezi and the Indus. His passion for white water has led him to wild rivers in Turkey, Nepal, Madagascar, Albania, Chile and Papua New Guinea. Closer to home, Skip has run the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon 35 times.

Skip lives in Montana with his wife and two children. His wife Elizabeth helps to run the guiding business, Skip Horner Worldwide, Inc. As a guide Skip is welling to do and go just about anywhere. He has led walking safaris in Africa, a ski expedition to the North Pole, trips to the world’s most remote mountain ranges and camel treks across the Sahara.

Skip is certified as a guide through the American Mountain Guides Association and is on the faculty of the Wilderness Medical Conference, he is also a Fellow in the Explorers Club. When he is not guiding Skip can be found making inspirational speeches and spending time in Montana with his family.
