Born in Red Deer, Alberta, Ross discovered the mountains as a teenager visiting Western Canada's best winter destinations as a sponsored snowboarder. At the age of 16 he was introduced to rock climbing through a local Whistler guide. This experience completely captivated him and opened his eyes to the huge potential the mountains present. In the following years, he completed his certification as an International Mountain Guide. “I feel privileged to be able to work as a mountain guide and look forward to sharing the thrill of the mountains with my guests.” Ross has guided, climbed and skied in the European Alps for the last several seasons. When he's at home he can be found working as a heli-ski guide in winters and climbing alpine rock routes in summer. @ross_berg_

Raised on a guest ranch in the Colorado Rockies, Tucker has spent his entire life leading people efficiently and safely through the mountains. While his early years were spent on horseback and snowmobile, he was introduced to rock climbing in his early twenties and has never looked back. He moved to Squamish with his family in pursuit of earning his ACMG Rock Guide certification and now dedicates himself to ensuring clients have the best possible experience on Squamish's magnificent granite. While he is constantly researching and staying on top of the newest rock climbing equipment, systems and gear, his client testimonies indicate Tucker is most passionate about helping people have an incredible time in the mountains. When he’s not guiding, Tucker can likely be found ski touring with his young daughter in the Coast Mountain backcountry or sipping whiskey on alpine peaks with friends. @tuckeroderick

Kinley began climbing in Squamish 15 years ago and has been proud to call the Sea to Sky home ever since. A full career of climbing adventures has taken her to such exotic sun-soaked rock destinations as Madagascar, Australia, and Mexico, as well as some of the highest and wildest peaks in North America, from the Southern US and the Waddington Range to Mt. Whitney. With ten years of guiding under her belt, Kinley still loves the engaging work of an ACMG Rock Guide. Whether leading multi-pitch routes up the Chief or teaching high-level instructional courses to aspirant guides, she stays excited about her profession thanks to the variety of technical challenges and the personal connections she makes with a diversity of people. When she’s not guiding, Kinley maintains that the perfect summer’s day in Squamish would be spent leisurely drinking coffees, cruising up perfect splitter cracks above the ocean, and spending the evening gardening with her two-year-old daughter in tow. @kinleyaitken
