David’s love for high places has lead him to establish a career in the mountains. Initiated to skiing and climbing at a young age, he continued to develop this passion into adulthood and has applied his skills to help others meet their mountain goals.
He has been guiding guests climbing, skiing and mountaineering for more than 15 years and has successfully guided clients on the highest peaks of Western Canada and Europe. Some of his broad winter guiding background includes work for the Canadian Cat & Heli-ski industry, various backcountry ski lodges in BC and Ski Mountaineering programs in remote mountain ranges. When not skiing or climbing guiding, he enjoys exploring first ascents and descents in remote mountain areas.
As a guide, David looks forward to sharing his skills and passion for adventure with you. He is particularly invested in giving you the means to define and achieve your goals while exploring your full potential. He guides the majority of trips and courses we offer. He lives in Nelson, B.C. with his family.
