Shannon Harness


I am an outdoor recreation professional who is passionate about being outdoors, getting others outdoors, world travel, and combating 'nature-deficit disorder'?. Of all the activities I am involved in, I am most passionate about mountain biking, teaching, and trail building, but my past, present, and future experiences are constantly exposing me to new and exciting adventures daily. Most recently, I have been focusing on mountain bike guiding, skills instruction, recreation management, and assisting in the development of a mountain biking certification program for Colorado Mountain College. I am an IMBA ICP Level 1 Ride Guide and a PMBI Level 1 Instructor. Recent travels have taken me to exciting places such as Kenya, Tanzania, Peru, Australia and New Zealand. Additionally, I have 10 years of experience across multiple technical positions. In that time I've developed exceptional troubleshooting, problem resolution, and instructional skills as well as an outstanding reputation for providing a high level of customer service to executive, staff, and hourly positions.
