Description

For a full week, I would like to guide you on a ski touring adventure in the stunning Kootenay region of British Columbia, Canada.

Enjoy a unique ski touring week in the Kootenays and refresh your avalanche rescue skills as you combine exhilarating exploration and runs during the day and classroom adventures when the day is done.

This 7-day adventure is the perfect getaway for enthusiastic skiers that want a full nature immersion and ski touring adventure. Furthermore, it includes an AST2 avalanche skills training course. The AST2 course will cover a lot of important topics. Those topics will prove helpful not only during this trip but in future skiing adventures you may have. The course will take place during the mornings and evenings. Thus giving you the afternoons to enjoy the slopes and spectacular terrain!

In order to participate in this trip, you should have prior ski touring experience. You should also be AST1 trained and be in good physical condition.

Ski touring in the Canadian Rockies is unforgettable, not just for the skiing, but for the tremendous views. If you would like to enjoy this week-long adventure that also includes the AST2 avalanche course, just send me a request.

I also lead a shorter, 4-day ski touring trip that also includes the same avalanche training course at the beautiful Talus lodge.

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

Tim

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.

Brent was competent and I felt had the qualifications to keep us safe rock climbing. But, compared to other guides we have had (one the day before in via ferrata) Brent seemed disinterested in us and was not as engaged in teaching. He fulfilled the requirements, but I would not rebook or recommend based on our experience.

Brent was an amazing guide. Knowledgeable, personable, safe and a great communicator. He communicated very well with us leading up to the trip and executed the trip flawlessly. Id highly recommend Brent if you are looking for an guide in the back country.
