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
*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non- recoverable costs).
