Jen was a great guide - super friendly, really knowledgeable. I appreciated all the efforts that went into planning the weekend. I had a ton of fun and learned so much.Danielle Down, Nanaimo, BC
Your guide, Jen Olson, is a gem. Her calm confidence and ability to take charge made all of us feel safe in a terrain that was quasi unknown to us. Not only is her skill set insanely broad but most importantly, Jen is capable to teach those skills with such ease. She is captivating and so passionate that one can’t help but love mountaineering when next to her. I wouldn’t hesitate to take another course if I knew she was teaching.Genevieve Renart, Victoria, BC
