Meet Bill

Bill Amos founded NW Alpine in 2010 after a varied non-career that included bike messengering, ski patrolling, gear shop employee-ing, substitute teaching middle school students, and working as a community college instructor. Bill enjoys climbing and has managed to flail his way up various first ascents and significant repeats in the Northwest and beyond (including the first ascent of The Deer Hunter, the first modern mixed route in the Columbia River Gorge). He is also a passionate student of economics and thinks American manufacturing is awesome.
