ACMG Ski Guide

I am a ACMG Ski Guide because I want to share the experience and joy of skiing/snowboarding in the backcountry with you and it brings fulfilment to my work and life. From the first timers just starting their skiing journey to the hard charging veterans, I want all my guests to experience the same joys of skiing/snowboarding I do.

I have 25 years working experience in the ski industry in various roles from Ski Instructor, Ski Patrol, Ski School Supervisor, Avalanche Research Technician and finally Ski Guide. While I’m not spending time in the mountains, I’m working for a geotechnical & geohazards engineering company, as Geological/Geotechnical Engineer, P.Eng. I completed my Bachelor of Applied Sciences degree in Geological Engineering at University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.

Born and raised on a farm and chasing winters for over 25 years in Canada, New Zealand and Norway. Alpine Club of Canada is a gem, amazing huts and people. Come have fun and enjoyment in the backcountry with our guide and chief team. Fairy Meadows hut has a special place in my heart, and I cannot wait to show you.
