A certified IFMGA/ACMG Mountain Guide, Brian has been guiding extensively in the mountains of Western Canada and around the world for many years. While he spends a great deal of his time based out of Squamish and Whistler, BC, he is also the only Canadian Mountain Guide actively leading expeditions to the “Seven Summits” of the world, including successful ascents of Mt Everest. He also has extensive experience in the mountain ranges of Western Canada, Alaska, California’s Sierras, the European Alps, South America’s Andes, Russia’s Caucus Mountains, Antarctica and the High Atlas Range in Morocco.
Brian lives in Squamish, BC with his family and divides his time between actively guiding both winter Backcountry Skiing and summer Alpine Climbing trips in Canada and internationally. When not in the field, Brian also manages and oversees the operation of Canada West Mountain School.
