Monte Johnston

IFMGA Mountain Guide

Monte is an ACMG / IFMGA Mountain Guide that works full-time skiing, mountaineering and climbing from his home base in Squamish, BC. After graduating university with an engineering degree, he found he wasn’t satisfied only chasing his passion for the mountains on weekends or in the evenings. This led him away from working behind a desk into a life of guiding and avalanche forecasting. Monte now spends his winters ski touring and heli skiing in BC with an international trip or two thrown in for fun. His summers are similarly spent sharing exploring the mountains of the world and sharing his passion for the outdoors. His personal favorite zone is the Tantalus Range, a snow, ice and granite paradise located on Squamish’s doorstep.
