About Banff Alpine Guides
All of our guides are certified by the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG) and/or the International Feeration of Mountain Guide Associations (IFMGA). We all have years of experience in the mountains around Banff and further afield. It is our goal every day to provide you with an unforgettable adventure in the mountains and to do it safely. Whether it's a half day rock climbing adventure for someone new to the sport or a multi day alpine climbing or ski touring trip with experienced guests, we'll do everything we can to make it the trip of a lifetime!
Geoff Osler is an ACMG/IFMGA Mountain Guide who has called Banff home for nearly 15 years. Having grown up in Calgary, Geoff was exposed to the mountains from a young age and has not looked back since. He has an easygoing personality and a dry sense of humor that endears him to his guests.
Geoff has always enjoyed variety and as a result his work as a guide has taken him to many different places including 15 years working as a heli/catskiing guide in Bristish Columbia; ski touring trips to many of British Columbia’s backcountry lodges; remote basecamp ski touring; several trips, both climbing and skiing, to the European Alps; ski touring in Japan, Greenland and the Yukon; ice, rock and alpine climbing in the Canadian Rockies; mountain safety work for a remote gold mine in Kyrgyzstan and several jobs working with ski and snowboard film companies.
Well versed in all the disciplines, Geoff is keen to get out and help you reach your goals in the mountains!
