PHIL WILHELM
Guide/AST Instructor

Phil grew up at the foot of the Rockies in Calgary, but that wasn't enough, he had to move closer and has now resided in the Bow Valley for the past 20 years pursuing his passions. Aside from guiding ski trips or rock climbs you can find him skiing or climbing for fun, or maybe fly fishing to satisfy his zen side. Safety oriented, an eye for a good line, a sly sense of humor and being an all round good guy make Phil a great choice to guide your next adventure.

Phil is an apprentice rock and ski guide with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides, and is a professional member of the Canadian Avalanche Association.  He has been guiding since 2009.
