Having worked for numerous guiding operations from Australia to the Canadian Rockies and to here in Squamish, I have been convinced that the independent operator provides the highest level of service, customization and reward for the client and even the guide. Throughout your entire interaction from initial inquiry to follow up questions, It is me and only me that you communicate with, this means I get to provide you with a more customised and personalised guiding experience. Guiding is a highly social occupation and developing lasting relationships with you the clients is highly rewarding for both you the client and for me the guide.
Ski & Rock climbing speciality Guide (Full) ACMG + Owner & founder
Hello I’m looking forward to guiding you. One of my favourite parts of guiding is meeting interesting people like you. It’s a very social job and I find it fascinating to hear people's stories. I also really enjoy expanding what you think you are capable of, and your knowledge and understanding of these backcountry sports & their dynamic environments. Oh and I particularly enjoy it when you ski the best turns of your life, or achieve personal climbing goals. My guiding career started in the Canadian Rockies and has taken me through the interior ranges of BC, and now the Coast ranges. Japan, holds a special place in my guiding heart and I hope to return there soon. I specialize in adventure ski touring, nothing beats the slow, social, human powdered and mountain appreciation that only ski touring can provide. I'm also a passionate rock climber and Rock climbing guide, I started my climbing guiding career on the limestone cliffs of the Canadian Rockies, and under the mentorship of Yamnuska guides. Cutting my teeth in the loose alpine terrain of the Rockies develops a high level of route finding and objective hazard assessment that has kept me safe in many climbing and Mt Ranges throughout the globe. Besides all the ACMG certification, training and exams, I also have a Bachelor of applied science in Adventure Eco Tourism, and an Adventure Guides diploma from Thompsons Rivers University.
