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.

We had an amazing weekend in the coast mountains with Guillaume on an intro to Mountaineering course. The heavy rains were an afterthought as he effortlessly made our time in the field educational, memorable and super fun. He is an absolute wealth of knowledge as well as experience and really does a fantastic job breaking down the material for everyone involved. I would highly recommend Coast Mountain Guides to anyone (all experience levels) looking to get out into the Mountains, whether it be to build new skills, push themselves to new heights or to breathe it all in!

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!

Amazing experience with Coast Mountain Guides and guide JF Plouffe!! I was an Olympic freestyle skier and everyone in our group were very good skiers, with our AST-1, BUT we are all somewhat new to the Backcountry. We loved how the guide was giving us the right level of information and education along the way. Just for that it was worth the price. On a cold blue sky day without new snow for well over a week, JF was able to find us some great sections!! We felt safe, well informed and perfectly guided to the level of our ability, both up and down. Merci!!

Our guide, JF, was super knowledgeable, took the necessary precautions, and had a real skill for finding beautiful lines.

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!

I was brought into the CMG family last year and am now a repeat client. I would highly recommend this guiding outfit to anyone and everyone looking to go farther, higher and be safer in the mountains. I've taken a 3-day AST course, a 4-day mountaineering course and have hired CMG for back-country skiing day trips. The knowledge these guides have is unprecedented. 10/10

I have taken several courses with Coast Mountain Guides and they have all been epic! They do an amazing job of teaching through hands on experience and put in the extra effort to make the courses enjoyable and memorable. I hope to hire them for some guided trips in the near future to create more memories exploring the coast mountains!
