Beyond experience, certification and passion, CAPOW! Guides are leaders of a growing community; a community that believes in sharing specialized mountain travel knowledge with recreational enthusiasts.
The team (Caposse) is a group of backcountry mentors that have three very important things in common:
A Capow! guide’s approach is more than “I lead, you follow,” instead, they inspire and educate steps through the PROcess of decision making and how it applies to the real mountain environment. They are backcountry mentors that lead by setting an example, stimulate the conversation and tailor to their guests desires for higher learning and experiences. This is our team, this is their backyard. Do you want to come along for the ride?
The first day on the job as a firefighter in downtown Vancouver Marty rescued a kitten out of a tree.
If you’re dumbfounded that that is actually a thing, we are to. But that’s our guy Marty. He’s the real deal, and so him not to hesitate to help out wherever it’s needed… and be our hero. Marty comes from a career of racing xc mountain bikes professionally. He balances a full time job as a firefighter and is working his way to become a professionally certified guide. Yep… if you run the numbers quick on that one the guy does EVERYTHING. We’re actually not totally sure how he gets so much time off from the department, but wont ask… cause we’re so happy to have him.
