ACMG Mountain Guide

I have been a professional skier and climber since 1983, working as a ski patroller and avalanche forecaster before becoming a mountain guide. Living in Banff I have spent much of my time in the mountains close by, climbing the north faces of Mount Temple, Howse Peak, Mount Kitchener, Diadem Peak and Mount Edith Cavell; great ridges like the Emperor on Mount Robson and the northeast ridge of Mount Bryce; and many of the Selkirk and Bugaboo classics, such as Mount Sir Donald, Mount Sir Sandford, and the Beckey/Chouinard route on the South Howser Tower.
