Founder and Guide of SMA

Alex started skiing at age 5 near Montreal, Canada, and began his ski teaching career at 16. Since graduating in 1998 with a degree in Recreation and Tourism, Alex’s lifestyle has been focused on skiing in the winter and climbing/biking in the summer, which eventually brought him to Utah. Since then, he has been on a relentless quest to find the best snow, rocks and trails and has perfected his mountain skills to an art. With his infectious smile and fun, dynamic attitude, Alex is known for instilling a sense of adventure and personalized instruction to all his guests. He climbs over 100 days per summer, skis over 100 days every winter and has over 20 years of experience in the mountains. Alex is uniquely qualified with extensive experience in both teaching technical skills as well as safely guiding in the backcountry. His certifications include the extremely coveted CSIA level IV ski instructor, CSCF level II coach, AMGA rock guide course, level II Avalanche Cert., CPR and Wilderness First Responder. When he’s not guiding, Alex spends his time perfecting his own skills on the rock (climbs up to 5.13c), developing new climbing areas, brewing award winning beer, skiing powder and travelling all over the world in search of perfect rock and snow! Alex is also the owner and founder of GearLoopTopo.com
