David Lottmann

David grew up skiing in the White Mountains and started climbing at a summer camp just north of Mt. Washington when he was only 16. Those first couple of years solidified climbing as a lifetime passion. From 1996-2000, he served in the US Marines and spent the better part of those years traveling the globe (18 countries). After returning to civilian life, he moved to North Conway to focus on climbing and was hired in 2004 as a Rock and Ice Instructor. Since then, Dave has taken numerous AMGA courses; most recently attaining a AMGA Single Pitch Instructor Certification. He has completed a Level 3 AIARE avalanche course, is a Level 2 Course Leader, holds a valid Wilderness First Responder certification, and is a member of the “A” team of Mountain Rescue Service, the “Winter Above Treeline” team of Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue, and an expert instructor at Wilderness Navigation holding seminars for MRS, AMC, TMC, and EMS.
