Craig has been riding/racing snowmobiles and motorcycles since the age of 9. A life changing accident, along with his love for the mountains and the loss of a riding buddy, inspired him to start ride 701. The dream of becoming a professional backcountry riding and safety skills instructor, became a reality in 2018. In 2018, Craig’s vision with ride 701 aligned perfectly with Driven Backcountry Riding Schools in which he has teamed with teaching Ride Rasmussen Style. Craig’s current certifications are AIARE 1, Avalanche Rescue, CPR and AED, as well as Wilderness First Aid. Ride 701 is also partnered with 3C Guiding in Wyoming, and Kra-z’s Snowmobile and Backcountry Guide Service in Montana. When Craig isn’t on the snow he is farming in ND and spending time with his family. If you’re searching for training, guiding and/or rentals in the snow industry, Craig will get you taken care of.
