CELEBRATING 20 YEARS
FORGET BURNING LEGS & ACHING BACKS…
YOUR FACE WILL HURT FROM SMILING SO MUCH!
Just participated in the Introduction to Mountaineering course, and it was a truly amazing program! Guillaume has over 20 years of experience and it shows. He provided valuable and concise information that was specifically tailored to the types of excursions that we hope to execute in the future. It was entertaining, fun, and extremely hands-on. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that's looking to take their exploring to the next level. It's a must-have experience for any adventurer, and worth every penny.
If you want to have a great experience, Coast Mountain Guides are the ones to do it. Guillaume is amazing. He goes out of his way to give whatever the client is looking for. In my case it is amazing skiing, challenging mountaineering and a friend to hang out with. He is a machine that can go anywhere and do anything. Most importantly he is the most considerate, safe guide. I spend days alone with him doing technical ski descents and mountaineering and I take my family out with him on fun mountain experiences. Having 2 kids of his own, he is perfectly placed to know what gets kids excited about the mountains and he always knows how hard he can push people ensuring they still have a great time. Guillaume started out as a guide for me and now I consider him a good friend. If you are in Whistler and you want to do anything outside the resort then get in touch with Coast Mountain Guides. You won't be disappointed.
My husband and I first walked on a glacier with Coast Mountain Guides about 15 years ago. Since then, we’ve had numerous outings customized to our fitness level and interests. There is no other company I would consider using as a guide to explore Whistler or the surrounding areas. Professional, pleasant service and a wealth of knowledge—plus they are just fun to hang out with!
This past weekend I took part in Coast Mountain Guide's Intro to Mountaineering. It was easily one of the most enjoyable and engaging outdoors courses I've ever had the pleasure of participating in. Guillaume is an excellent instructor. He breaks everything down so that you can understand the techniques and methodology behind Mountaineering. He was incredibly helpful and welcomed our continuous questions. We felt safe at all times with him and he encouraged us as we learned the aspects of the course. He has the perfect personality for instructing - he is professional when needed and goofy at other times. His demeanor put me completely at ease. I would highly recommend Coast Mountain Guides and Guillaume for any guided outdoors course and I'm really looking forward to putting what I've learned to use in the mountains. Thank you!
had the AST level 2 with them and enjoy the 4 days training very much. Instructor JF told us lots useful techniques for touring and highly recommended.
I was with Guillaume for my AST 2 and he was great! There was not a lot of snow, but he knows his mountain and we found some great areas to ski some fresh powder and test the snow. He is extremely knowledgeable and know how to share all that knowledge effectively. It was an amazing experience and I learned even more than I thought I would!
Had an awesome day touring Spearhead, Circle Lake and Showcase glacier with JF. Super nice guy and I instantly trusted that he knew 100% what he was doing. Left me to just relax and enjoy the powder. Such a great experience.
I can attest to the extensive local knowledge, the very high technical level of instruction, the constant attention to safety and the never-ending energy and enthusiasm. The boys learned some real backcountry skills while having a lot of fun in a very positive environment.
Coast & JF took us for a day we will never forget in Pemberton! Highly qualified guides, fun and know how to create a day for any level of skiers!
