PROFESSIONAL MOUNTAIN GUIDES
STEVE SCOTT - Operations Manager
Our operations manager has been shredding pow for over 15 years in the Revelstoke area. Guiding for Steve is a challenging way to enjoy the mountains, bringing new or experienced people into the backcountry giving them new lessons and a really high quality experience. A recent client says, "we’ve been coming here for 5 years riding all season, and the one day we went with you was our top 3 days of every day we’ve been in Revelstoke." "That encompasses why I guide," says Steve. It’s super fun to show what the real Revelstoke can be. Also just passing down so much of the operations experience and safety protocols. How to be a good backcountry person. It's fun to share that with the rest and see it spread through the community which makes it a better and safer industry and sport. "That's very important to me."
