Probably the biggest lure of
all is the chance to venture in to the mountains using a culmination
of all your skills and judgment. The magic of climbing and "finding"
your way up a mountain or around one, is one of the great joys
of both exploring and climbing!
Trips can be tailored to suit your needs. I am licensed to guide in both Alberta and British Columbia.
I am happy to answer questions, help
you plan a trip and take care of the logistics so when you get here, we're ready to go !
Let me show you some of the most spectacular areas in the Rockies!
The Jasper area is a great place for
alpine climbing. The area has much to offer in some distinguishably
different environments. The eastern slopes offer some excellent alpine
rock climbs. The Ice fields offer some excellent snow and ice routes.
A number of Alpine huts offer access to some great areas of climbing
close to the Jasper area. Send me an email and tell me what you are
interested in and I'll can plan the rest.
We know the best peaks in the area
suited to your level!
Personal Guiding / Instruction/ Consulting
This is suited for the individual wanting
one-on-one instruction. For groups, special trips are routinely arranged.
Small groups benefit greatly from individual guiding. Though the cost
is more, this form of "hiring a professional guide" is recommended
for people with specific dates or if you have an agenda of skill sets
you want to work on.

It is often difficult to find a guide in July or August unless you
book early in the spring!
Winter Mountaineering is becoming a
popular activity all over the Rockies. From easy scrambles, to longer
trips with ski approaches.
Most trips of this nature require skis
for approach. Personal gear is the responsibility of the participant,
but I can help in getting you the gear you will need. Equipment lists
and planning details will be sent once you are confirmed. Both hut
based trips and snow camping are possible.
Introductory, Intermediate courses or
guided waterfall climbing is available on request.

with some basic technique, then spend the afternoon in a "out
of the way" canyon. Some equipment may have to be rented depending
on group size.
Ski Touring is the way to explore
the mountains in the winter. Numerous day tours and overnight
tours are available. I can organize all the logistics, either
hut to hut or camping. I offer day ski trips in and around the
