Kurt's life has been surrounded by sport. He holds a Bachelor Degree of Sport Management, is an outdoor industry executive with over 20 years experience in sporting goods, and is a bonafide gear junkie looking for the latest and greatest piece of gear.
His career has enabled winter seasons full of recreation and over the past 10 years Kurt has made it his mission to seek out adventures in the mountains of British Columbia. Over that time, he has explored and skied remote peaks of the west and gained an intimate knowledge of the vast terrain of the Coastal Mountains. Both self propelled travel on skis and exploration by snowmobile has benefited Kurt with extensive knowledge and a unique perspective to pass on to AST students.
An active member of the CAA, CSIA Level 2 Ski instructor and aspiring Ski Guide, Kurt takes great pride and enthusiasm in enabling the next generation of backcountry skiers the skills to recreate safely in the mountains.
