About Félix

I am the owner of El Gato Mountain Adventures and an ACMG Hiking and Ski Guide. I grew up in a subburb of Québec City, surrounded by nature, ski resorts and Provincial Parks. I lived in Montréal during my university years which provided an easy escape to the Laurentians, Green & White Mountains as well as the Adirondaks. Later on I moved to the Canadian Rockies to live in the mountains. I started ski patrolling and guiding hiking trips as soon as I moved to Canmore.

I am also an avid rock and alpine climber and hope to become a Mountain Guide one day. I have been quite involved with the Alpine Club Of Canada over the years, especially with the Rocky Mountain Section. Finally I have been the Canadian Rockies & East Kootenays Technical Representative for Backcountry Access for several years.
