Alpine Skills

Alpine Skills

The first ACMG ski guide course was about to start, the Alpine Skills and my instructor was no other then the legendary Chris Miller.

First glimpse I did not know what to think of him, he looked like one of those old rock stars that had somehow stopped in time, back when Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones where at there best.

The pressure is on!

The pressure is on!

It felt a little strange going back to school although this one is a little out of the ordinary. 

Before I went to Canada I still could not believe this was happening and did not know what to expect. Preparing I spent most of my time studying, practicing knots, putting up rope rescue pulley systems, reading, physical training and swearing over my winter plan. 

I got in!

I got in!

I am sitting in my living room, as I have been doing for the past few days and I just got into the ACMG (Association of Canadian Mountain Guides) ski guide program at Thompson Rivers University in Canada, FIRST TRY!! Ohh yeah! :D
