Meet Your Guides
'Rugged' alex Ross
Alex spent his childhood racing across the rocky shores of the Georgian Bay in nothing but shorts, and a Tilley hat, slowing only to dodge rattlesnakes. The few times he wasn't barefooted he wore his trusty rubber boots, especially when operating his first adventure tours (tearing around the yard with his little brother Julian clinging on for dear life in an usually airborne wheel barrow). Helping people get out of their comfort zone and adventure has always been a calling. He knew he would be an adventure guide when he was 8 years old, which justified focusing on having fun outside instead of homework. He has extensively explored northern Ontario by canoe, learned to surf during cold Atlantic winter storms while completing a Commerce degree in Halifax, and traveled across the country to pursue a lifestyle of adventure in British Columbia. After a few summers in the Canadian Coast Guard , raft guide school, guiding in the Yukon and Rockies, several ski seasons and being abused by heavy surf breaks around the world, he is looking forward to helping you do something amazing.
