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’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.

Coast Mountain Guides is my "go-to" guiding company in North America and the reason I return to Whistler as often as I can despite living in Australia. Guillaume is an exceptional guide with an extensive knowledge of the area, an ability to find the perfect day whatever the weather, a detailed eye on safety and an infectious enthusiasm through which he shares his love of the mountains and his great expertise. I cannot recommend CMG enough!!

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

Guillaume is fantastic! The 3-hour marathon online avalanche course was well worth the time. Highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about getting into the backcountry or who just wants to learn something new.

Coast Mountain Guides puts together a professional, fun and challenging program each time that I've hired them. They made our weekend in the back-country one for the memory books by navigating challenging terrain and finding the optimum runs considering the snow conditions and changing temperature and weather through the day. I have JF and G on speed dial, so should 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

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.
