Mountain Guide- Canmore, Alberta, Canada
Guiding has been my lifelong passion. I have lived in the Rocky Mountains for most of my life, guiding since 1995.
My main focus these days is on running winter ski touring trips at the best heli-accessed ski lodges in British Columbia. This winter I'll be at Selkirk Lodge, Burnie Glacier Chalet, Mount Carlyle Lodge, and Sunrise Lodge -- each lodge providing a very different experience for my guests. While I do like to return, year after year, to my favourite lodges (like Burnie Glacier) I also like to provide new and interesting options for my clients.
When ski season ends here in Western Canada and the rest of my colleagues are putting away their skis for the summer, I will be once again heading to Svalbard in the Arctic for another Ski and Sail trip in May. This is the only trip I still have openings for now -- maybe you would like to join me there?
The Bow-Yoho Traverse April 1 to April 7, 2019. Tom, the guides (Mel and Ken) and an assistant (John) led this trip with care, kindness, humour and expertise. When conditions required it, we were able to form 2 or 3 groups according to abilities and motivation. That was fabulous. Staying the first night in Field with supper and breakfast provided is a great way to begin the trip. The shuttle at the start and at the end was well-planned. When I signed up for the trip I had concerns about the quality of the food. Tom reassured me. He was right. Michelle Heerchop's 'Touch of Love" provided the food. It was varied, tasty and nutritious. I am very very pleased that I was able to be part of this trip. I highly recommend Tom's Sawback Alpine Adventures.
Went to Burnie Chalet near Smithers BC with Sawback Alpine Adventures in April 2019. Had an amazing ski week in a breathtakingly beautiful landscape. The logistics, the accommodations, the food, the people and the skiing were all outstanding. One of my best touring trips ever. I highly recommend Sawback and Tom Wolfe.
Amazing week of powder skiing at Selkirk Lodge. Tom is a fantastic ski guide and treated us to memorable days of excellent skiing and exploring the surrounding terrain.
I met Tom Wolfe for the first time when I joined him on a trip to Sorcerer Lodge in April 2018. It was one of the most interesting and enjoyable trips that I have been on. Tom kept us up to date with organizational planning and schedules, and everything was well organized for the departure date. The transfers were smooth and coordinated. Tom and the team were great at including everyone in the discussions and planning, and were always happy to answer questions and provide teaching. The late-season trip was blessed with great snow but the rapidly warming temperatures and fluctuating snow conditions presented quite a few challenges. I felt very confident with Tom's route choices and his attention to safety. The group was made up of skiers and boarders with varying skill levels from intermediate to advanced, and Tom was very good at supporting all of us individually as well as helping us to function as a group. I am very much looking forward to my next trip with Tom.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
