Monte’s a full-time Skiing, Mountaineering & Climbing Guide based in Squamish, BC. After graduating university with an engineering degree he found he wasn’t satisfied only chasing his passion for the mountains on weekends or in the evenings. This led him away from working behind a desk into a life of guiding, avalanche forecasting and movie/film safety work. Monte has since climbed and skied all over the world including Patagonia, India, Kenya, Tanzania, Oman, Chile, Argentina, Costa Rica, Australia, New Zealand, Spain and Japan. Of course he’s also visited numerous areas closer to home like Bella Coola, Bugaboos, Rockies, Rogers Pass, Alaska, Yukon, Indian Creek, Red Rocks, Zion, Joshua Tree, Index, Yosemite, etc.
In addition to Guiding, Monte’s an avid gear junkie. He simply loves testing the limits of new gear, apparel and equipment for various articles and reviews though mainly for Black Sheep’s site.
