Apex Alpine Adventures Ltd.

Wes is a veteran of Extreme Alpine Sports, having been seduced by the mysterious alure of mountains at a young age. His early adventures with his father sparked his passionate pursuit of snow driven Apex Challenges.

In a lifetime of chasing uncharted powder, his encounters with mountains like sleeping giants, has taught him we are no match for a mountain. Safety is an illusion without knowledge, and when a mountain wakes up, what we 'know' can be the difference between life and death.

Wes's experience and expertise in Ski Mountaineering and Snowmobiling have been the natural segway to a career as an Avalanche Safety Training and Snowmobile Safety Instructor.
