Kevin resides in Richmond Vermont with his wife Claire and two daughters Annika and Eliza.

Kevin worked rock climbing and mountaineering courses for the National Outdoor Leadership School for six years averaging 30-40 weeks a year in the field. So after college where Kevin had discovered his new passion for rock and ice climbing, he was now living his dream of spending more time in the backcountry than not. This is where Kevin became a teacher. Experiential education was the name of the game at NOLS and facilitating individuals’ learning experiences was as important as the technical skills being taught. This is where Kevin was the example. His leadership skills, his judgment, and his knowledge of the mountains were all scrutinized everyday all day.

This lifestyle suited Kevin, however, he decided to settle back down in NH and pursue guiding full time. Kevin guided for several schools for many years before he decided to start his own business, Mahoney Alpine Adventures.

Ultimately, this decision led Kevin in the direction of seeking his full international certification through the IFMGA. Kevin went through coursework in all 3 disciplines: ski mountaineering, rock and alpine climbing and, successfully passed the 3 exams. He has also instructed courses for the AMGA.
