Meet our Guide

Fritz grew up in the beautiful Bern area of Switzerland, right next to the Bernese Alps. This area is known for having some of the best skiing, mountaineering and climbing in the world. He had a huge passion from a very early age for farming and exploring the Alps by ski and foot, spending all of his extra cash on ski/climbing gear. Most of his free time (when he wasn’t farming) was spent exploring the Swiss Alps with friends, he explored the Alps further during his service with the Swiss Army – Mountain Division. His passion for the outdoors is year-round; in the winter he does backcountry ski guiding, ski mountaineering with family members and friends. In the summer you can find him in the mountains on hiking/scrambling trips. Fritz immigrated to Canada with his young family 32 years ago. His family operated an award winning dairy farm in Ontario and Manitoba for 20 years. After moving to the little Kootenay mountain town of Kimberley, Fritz took many guiding/avalanche/wilderness first aid courses and began guiding. Between living in the West Kootenays and part-time in Kimberley, he’s had endless opportunities to scout out all the secret spots at the ski hills and backcountry. He also owns/operates a successful bus company out of Trail, providing a much needed inter-city bus route between the West Kootenay/Boundary Region to Kelowna. Fritz has a huge passion for taking clients out in the Kootenay backcountry to show them this beautiful part of BC, much like he had as a child exploring the Bernese Alps. He is always very positive about life, and when asked what his biggest accomplishment in life has been so far, he says, “Being the father of my 5 cool, hip children.”
