Chris Berdoulay

Chris has been a longtime guide at Apex Mountain School. He loves spending time with his family, is an active volunteer with Vail Mountain Rescue Group, works on the ambulance crew, and is probably the nicest person you’ll ever meet. He’s traveled, hiked, and climbed internationally and loves to learn about other cultures.

His favorite food is Italian! He has done charity work for Salvation Army. Chris is an avid skier and climber. His first multi-pitch climb benighted with rappel rope stuck is his favorite story in the mountains. Chris is:
