I’ve taken a few courses with G and have kept coming back because of his knowledge and flexibility. He taught our AST1 course at a backcountry hut. He even customized our AST2 course with extra field days and evening classroom days to maximize time in the mountains.

I had several epic ice climbing days with Guillaume and I cannot recommend these guys enough. They’ll take you out into their backyard, show you around, teach you, help you, make sure you leave with new skills and a smile on your face. Guillaume is a highly experienced professional with unceasing positive energy. Great course and super fun guaranteed…highly recommend. I had a fantastic time, thanks guys.

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!

This crew knows exactly how to run a guiding business. It is all about the customer experience and this team of guides delivers on every level. I have climbed with some of the largest guiding companies on the planet, but few can put it all together and deliver like C.M.G. Guillaume and his guides will take you out into the their "backyard" and show you around, teach you, help you, and make sure you leave with new skills and smile on your face. They all love what they do and that energy just feeds the whole group. I cannot recommend these guys enough. Go for it, you will not be disappointed.

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

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!

Guillaume went with me and four friends of mine to do some Canyoneering. It was an unbelievable trip. Thank you 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.
