We think the best judge of a good guide is the memories they create for their clients. Here are a few we’re proud of:

“I’ve had the pleasure of climbing and skiing with Mike Stuart of Canadian Alpine Guides many times over the last few years. Whether it’s some of the classic Rockies ice lines such as Polar Circus or Hydrophobia, or grand alpine lines like East Ridge of Mount Temple, the North East Ridge of Bugaboo Spire or the North Face of Athabasca, we’ve had a blast together every time out!

Challenging, exhilarating and often long days together breeze by under Mike’s watchful and safety conscious eyes. Mike is always ready to offer tips to help me improve my climbing skills and to assist me to expand my overall mountain sense. I look forward to climbing with Mike for many years.”

“CAG and guide Mike Stuart offer outstanding programs for climbing, scrambling and hiking in the Canadian Rockies. After two trips, I can’t say enough good things about their client focus, skill and attention to safety.”

~ Lawrence C., Toronto, ON

“An ideal mountain guide should have the objective of providing the client with the best possible mountain experience in the compressed time usually available to business people and professionals seeking the challenge of climbing. Mike Stuart is that ideal mountain guide.

Over the past 25 years of climbing trips to Western Canada, I have found Mike to be one of the most exceptional of mountain guides: not just in the sense of outstanding judgment in navigating through mountain conditions and terrain, but also in his strong motivation to encourage the client to achieve his/her personal objectives within the bounds of safety at all times.

Anyone with an interest in seeking this kind of challenge would do well to have Mike as guide.”
