What is the CRUX?

 
 

The Crux is the pivotal point.  In rock climbing, it's the hardest move on the route.  In ski mountaineering, it's where you expose yourself or become vulnerable.  At Crux Backcountry Guides, we deal with this on a daily basis.  Hire us to take you on your next adventure and get through the crux.

Owner & Operator, Simon Thomson has been through many cruxes. 

Simon grew up out East in La Belle Province ripping around the small mountains of Quebec and New England.  After spending years ski racing and eventually freestyle skiing, Simon, as with many East Coaster's, made the pilgrimage out to BC in 2006 and never looked back.  His love for the mountains and backcountry grew and sharing this love became his main priority.  Simon began his guiding career in 2010 and is a fully certified Ski Guide under the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG).  He is also a professional member of the Canadian Avalanche Association (CAA).
