Tail Guide

Growing up in eastern Ontario, Jesse spent winters skiing the mountains of Quebec.  After graduating from university, he flew east to St. John’s, Newfoundland, got on a bike, and cycled west across the country.  Once in BC, he attended a ski touring/mountaineering college program and became instantly hooked on the sports.  Over the last ten years, he has spent winters ski touring the mountains of Alberta and BC.  He is always thinking about the next adventure, and when he is not skiing, he can be found hiking, camping, mountain biking, or trail running.  This will be Jesse’s first winter with Big Red Cats.
