Our Instructor

Raised in a Scandinavian/German family in Minnesota, Kristi deferred her law school ambitions to become a ski bum in Vail, CO, only to meet a Canadian who wooed her to the Great White North in 1989. Banff was her home for 20 years until moving to the “cool climbing town” of Canmore in 2009. 

Kristi is an accredited Hiking and Snowshoe Guide with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides and an accredited Professional and Master Interpreter with the Interpretive Guides Association. Her guiding career spans over 20 years in Banff, Yoho, Kootenay, Jasper and Waterton Lakes National Parks, along with the surrounding provincial parks. Kristin is also a course instructor for the interpretive guides Association for the past 12 years. “I love mentoring new guides and sharing my passion for the outdoors, while revealing in their excitement to be a guide!”

You may have seen Kristi on “Canada A.M.”, “CTV Travels”, Oasis TV, National Geographic Channel, for CNN, hiking snow-covered ridge tops while sharing her knowledge of the natural and cultural history in the Canadian Rockies, or read about her in the Calgary Herald “Snow Profiles on Women” and the Canadian National Geographic magazine.
