The unofficial OG of Blacksheep @chrislawrenceguiding provides perspective, wisdom and the experience of three decades dedicated to mountain life. Chris has worked as an outdoor education instructor, a ski patroller,  a snow cat ski guide, a heli ski guide, a ski touring guide, an Ice climbing guide, a rock climbing guide, a mountaineering guide and as a film safety rigger. Chris’s experience ranges from ski descents in the Japanese and the European Alps. Chris cut his teeth in the coast range of British Columbia but nourished his skills in the Strathcona Alps of Vancouver Island before graduating to multiple ascents of Mt. Waddington, BC’s highest peak.  He eventually called Squamish home where he has established himself as a Mountain Rescue Training specialist and is helping build a helicopter rescue TEAAM.
