IceWalks Guides

All IceWalks guides are certified members of the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides or international equivalents. The ACMG is the organization that certifies all mountain guides in Canada and is well recognized in the international guiding community. Completing the various courses means that our guides are qualified in glacier travel, crevasse rescue, the effects of changing weather conditions, and all other aspects of mountain and glacier travel. In other words, you can be confident that you will have a safe and stress-free adventure.

Our guides know how awe-inspiring the Canadian Rockies can be: we are here to share this unique landscape with you and demonstrate the impact glaciers have on our lives, not only in western Canada but across large portions of the world. Our guides are also accredited interpreters through the Interpretive Guides Association (IGA), and they will explain the formation of this dynamic environment.

Hi there! Doing a walk on a glacier is an impressionable mountain moment and it is a joy to be there with you. Although I am a veteran in the tourism and guiding industry, I enjoy learning to keep my interpretation and guiding skills fresh. See you out there!

Peter Hoyle

The Okanagan Valley is my home when I'm not guiding up on the Athabasca or spending the winter guiding heli-skiing for CMH. I truly love spending time with people in the mountains and sharing spectacular experiences with them. I love skiing, hiking and mountain biking, travelling, music and basketball.

Jason Guptill

Originally from a long line of east-coast fishermen, Jason grew up just outside Halifax, NS, where the BIG mountains are! He moved west in 2004 to find deeper snow, and has been hooked on the pow-pow ever since guiding skiing in the winter, and glaciers and rock climbing in the summer.

My experience in forestry and mountain rescue provided me with an outdoor lifestyle has fuelled and inspired me. Since 1998, I have guided many trips for many operations in the mountains of North America. I live in Golden, BC and whenever I get the chance I explore glaciers all over the world.
