A Northern California native who grew up in Graeagle, CA, Nick Meyers started as a seasonal climbing ranger when he was 19 years old in 2002. He applied for and received the Lead Climbing Ranger and Director of the Mount Shasta Avalanche Center position in 2010. As of 2023, Nick will have worked for 20 years with the US Forest Service on Mount Shasta. His career on the mountain began as a summer internship in 2002 while attending Feather River and Western State College for a degree in Recreation Leadership and Business. Rick Stock, Matt Hill and Eric White were some of his early mentors. Nick’s mountain sense and technical skills have developed and evolved much from his own personal lust for adventure. Whatever the season, Nick's got something in the adventure quiver. Climb, bike, moto, ski, paddle, surf, sail...Nick is in. His fearless spirit for adventure and democratic leadership style commands a team of rangers in the high stress and high risk operations on Mount Shasta. And randomly, Nick somehow landed the front cover of Popular Mechanics a few years ago. From that, a couple articles ensued... and a lot of teasing from his friends.
