Jamie Whiteside - Lead Guide
Jamie Whiteside moved to the mountains from his family ranch in Alberta over 20 years ago to follow his dream of guiding backcountry skiing, river, ocean, and trekking expeditions. He's followed this passion across the globe, guiding in Europe, the Himalaya, and Patagonia, but his favorite place to hang out is close to home in Golden, BC surrounded by the Purcells, Selkirks and Rockies. "Life is so much fun I look forward to each season I can work and play outside. Approaching winter my skin starts to tingle thinking about the deep snow, powder turns, great food, serenity and good times the winter will bring." I look forward to sharing all this with you!

Jesse Winkiewicz - Tail Guide
Jesse grew up in Ontario and spent his winters skiing the mountains of Quebec. After obtaining a university degree in mathematics, he decided he needed to go on an adventure. So he packed up his bike, flew to Newfoundland, and cycled across Canada. Once in BC, he attended a mountaineering program in college and became instantly hooked on ski touring.
Over the past 13 years, he has spent his winters skiing the mountains of western Canada.
He is always ready for an adventure, and when he is not skiing, he can be found behind the lens catching memories of the great places he's explored.
