+1 Days

Feb - May




* Spend one or a few days ski mountaineering on the amazing Mount Hector.

* Enjoy the beauty of Banff National Park in the Rockies of Alberta, Canada.

* Bask in the thrilling 1,500 meter long descent.


At 3,394 meters, Mount Hector is definitely one of the most impressive and intimidating peaks in the Rockies of Canada. It is also one of the best peaks for ski mountaineering as well, which is why I am offering this ski mountaineering trip that can last for one, or more days.

Mount Hector is located within the boundaries of Banff National Park. As a result, this ski mountaineering adventure makes for a great addition to a trip you may be taking to the renowned Canadian park. Also, the views you will get of Banff from the peak’s summit are absolutely breathtaking.

Reaching the top of the mountain is a challenge. The route is steep and icy, and requires some careful route finding. The climb to the summit also has a short, technical section that can be climbed on foot. However, I will see to it that you are properly guided every step of the way. Thus giving you a thrilling, but safe climbing experience. And when it comes to the descent, Mount Hector offers a long, approximately 1,500 meter glacial run that will absolutely amaze you.

Due to the challenging nature of Mount Hector, it is imperative that participants on this trip are in good physical condition. You should also be able to ski at a minimum single black diamond level.

Skiing in the Rockies in Banff National Park is an incredible experience. And on this trip, I would like to take you to the top of one of the highest mountains in the area. To join me, just send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you.

Mountain Guide

Based in Canmore, Alberta, I am an IFMGA- and ACMG-certified mountain guide. I also serve in the Canadian Armed Forces and am a founding partner of the Outward Bound Veterans Program.

My mission is for you to learn the skills to be competent and independent in the backcountry. I will break down complex skill sets into individual building blocks for you to learn progressively and confidently. After learning the skills, you will get to practice them in the backcountry with my guidance or that of one of the ACMG-certified guides in my team.

What people are saying about Brent



Admin was efficient for paying Communications were hit and miss. Took too long to answer questions about the day / route etc. We were beginners and the guide chose a route that was too challenging. One member of group dropped out the day before. The requested refund never even got a reply about. Let alone confirmation



Great guide, found us snow in the driest of year



Brent is an excellent guide. He was stoked to be able to share his mountain environment with others. Unfortunately he had damaged his knee so arranged for another local guide to take me out for the day. Ethan was also exceptional. Brent got in contact to ensure my day was tailored to me my experience and to ensure I got the most out of the day. I was without a car so Brent picked me up and dropped me off I had a great morning in the mountains learning new techniques for multi pitch routes and then spent the afternoon working on my trad gear placement and anchor building. Excellent instruction on gear placement and rating it. We fitted so much into the day. But always with an inclusive teaching style. I can’t recommend them enough. Both guides passionately sharing their knowledge and teaching skills, keen for their clients to learn to be more independent safer and capable in the mountains.



Brent was amazing! He gave me a great experience, taught me new techniques, made me feel safe, and catered my experience to exactly what I wanted. This was by far my favorite part of my whole vacation to the area!



Brent taught us to lead climb at a local crag. It was a great time and I’d recommend it to anyone regardless of climbing skill level. He’s open to teaching or guiding wherever you want to go.
