Steve Moffat, NZ Ops Coordinator/Guide


 Steve is one of our senior guides and when not out in the mountains guiding expeditions or his favourite NZ peaks, can be found in our offices coordinating the NZ guiding programme.

Steve is an IFMGA Climbing and Ski Guide with considerable Himalayan experience, both as expedition leader and guide.  In 2006 he guided and summitted on our Everest expedition. In addition to his time in the Himalayas, Steve has also guided in Canada, South America, Antarctica, and Greenland. 

He has years of climbing and skiing experience in New Zealand and has done several personal climbs in South America.

Steve has a passion for remote mountain adventures, likes his rock & ice climbing, and when he is ready for a break from the mountains, he makes his way to the surf.

"Steve did a great job in teaching me as much as he could in the short space of time we had.  He was well organised and adapted to the weather conditions well.   I felt very well looked after.  He was 100% professional at all times and clearly loves the mountains."  New Zealand Private Instruction Course

"Leadership on the mountain was excellent; Steve’s decision making was always excellent. Steve had good balance between looking out for the whole team, but not smothering us by doing everything for us, and allowing the team to look after ourselves, so we grew our mountaineering skills at certain times."  Cho Oyu 2014
