Thanks for pointing this out Ken. Many bill themselves as guides but the names in the article are NOT Association of Canadian Mountain Guide members.

Important for the public to know that you hire a certified guide to manage risk whereas unskilled persons will just take you into the mountains and expose you to risk.

What were the certifications of the guides? They are not Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG) members as these can be searched on CMSG?

I've known Mike Flude for years. The world is a better place because he survived the avalanche, thanks to the team and the technology that saved him...

Great piece! One point of fact: Kootenay Pass is nowhere near the highest paved year round road. The Icefield Parkway in Alberta has two passes (Sunwapta & Bow Summit) at 2035m and 2088m that make them much higher. This road too is open all year. Thanks!
