The First Unsupported, Unassisted American Expedition to the North Pole

Tyler Fish Ely, Minnesota USA. Birthdate:  June 15, 1973


Tyler Fish has dedicated his life to experiential education, family relationship counseling and the pursuit of challenge.  He is an elite cross country ski racer, wilderness travel expert and passionate facilitator of family and team relationships.  Tyler lives and works in Ely, Minnesota, where he directs the Outward Bound Intercept program designed for teens-at-risk and their families.  Tyler is inspired by the possibilities presented in pushing perceived limits, and leadership and team building philosophies.  

Tyler graduated from Bates College, Maine, in 1996.  Since then he has been working as year-round wilderness expedition leader and administrator for Outward Bound primarily in Minnesota, but also in Texas, Montana, and Manitoba, Canada.  He has managed or participated in several dog-sled expeditions in the Canadian Arctic.  He has also paddled several remote Canadian Rivers.

As director of the Outward Bound Intercept program, he trains and supervises staff to run effective, month-long experiences for teens-at-risk. During the last three days of these courses, Tyler runs an intensive parent/guardian seminar in which he assists families in developing common goals and constructing plans to achieve them.  In this way his technical wilderness abilities are strongly balanced by his leadership and facilitation skills. He loves to motivate, inspire, and help others to discover their own passions and unique abilities.

According to Tyler, there has never been a day too cold to strap on some sort of ski.  He spends his winters skiing at a competitive level in long distance cross-country ski marathons and also coaching a local ski team in Ely, Minnesota.
