Revelstoke Mountain Guides was founded in 2006 and is based in the Columbia Valley in between the Selkirk and Monashee Mountains.
Brett Lawrence is the owner/guide of RMG and has been guiding in Canada for the last 9 years. His passion for the mountains began at the age of 14, when his dad introduced him to rock climbing. Along the cliffs of the Gatineau Park, just outside of Ottawa, Ontario, Brett quickly became addicted to the sport. He soon realized that if he wanted to pursue the adventures of climbing, he had to move to a place that was immersed in the mountains. Five years later at the age of 19, Brett moved to Canmore, Alberta to advance his life in the mountains.
In 2001, Brett started taking courses and exams through the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides and in the spring of 2006 finished his last exam.
Fully certified through the International Federation of Mountain Guide Associations (IFMGA), Brett works independently running Revelstoke Mountain Guides, as well as sub-contracting with other guiding companies throughout western Canada. He spends the better part of the winter heli-skiing with Canadian Mountain Holidays (CMH).
Brett now lives in Revelstoke with his very supportive family, who allow him to continue his dreams.
