Itinerary:
We now have Ken Wylie confirmed! 'Mountains as Mentor'. Ken Wylie is an IFMGA mountain guide, educator, author and first ascensionist of difficult waterfall ice lines in the Canadian Rockies. In 2003, as an assistant guide, he was involved in a devastating avalanche catastrophe that claimed the lives of seven clients. Since then, his self-exploration has changed how he sees and understands the purpose of the high stakes game of mountain exploration. Wylie likens mountains to be as a great mentor. He knows that wisdom dictates that all knowledge is most powerful when unearthed by the learner through inquiry. Safety resides in part, in the realm of self- knowledge gained in this way. This talk complements the 2014 publication of his book "Buried."
Required Items to Bring:
Cash for beers and wine.

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
