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

Professional, experienced, well organized. On top of that, will make your trip a positive experience no matter what unexpected conditions mother nature throws at you. Highly recommended.

We had a fantastic time doing our AST 2 course with JF. He is a knowledgeable guide and funny too! If you're looking for a backcountry course, or a guided tour, I highly recommend JF. Good times guaranteed! Bonus because the snow was great!

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!

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!

Great online course intro to AST1, 2 highly recommend

We had the most amazing course with JF (aka the raddest and most incredible guide you’ll ever come across)!! JF went above and beyond teaching us even more than the AST1 course materials. He’s an absolute beauty and such a wealth of knowledge/experience you will be in the best hands. We had the best times, many laughs and heaps of learning!
