Fritz Keller  Meet our Team fritz 1

Fritz Keller

Owner/Guide

Fritz immigrated to Canada with his young family 34 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.”

Hi, I’m Bekka! Fritz’s oldest daughter and just like my dad I am a lover of the outdoors and the Kootenays! The most interesting work I has ever done was on our Family Dairy Farm were I was fortunate to grew up. From feeding calves, milking cows, field work, helping Grama in her big Garden, to everything else that had to be done on our Farm. I am part of our marketing team here at Silver City Stagelines. Some of the outdoor activities I love include snowboarding, climbing, trail running and just any activity that takes me outdoors. Professionally I have a background in business administration a designation I received from Selkirk College. I bring passion and enthusiasm to everything I do. With previous experience in sales and marketing I am excited to be serving the Kootenay area.
