2019 MGB Patron: John Baldwin
Coast Mountain ski explorer, mountaineer and author John Baldwin – Patron of the 2019 Mountain Guides Ball.
Over the past 40 years John Baldwin has completed hundreds of first ascents and pioneered many long ski traverses in the Coast Mountains, often to remote areas that have rarely been seen or photographed.
He has shared his passion for mountains and wilderness through three editions of his ski touring guidebook, Exploring the Coast Mountains on Skis, two photography books and four maps for backcountry skiing.
The motivation for his writing and photography is to inspire others to discover and connect with the intense beauty of our mountain wilderness, as in his latest work Soul of Wilderness, with his wife Linda Bily.
Join us at the 30th Annual MGB as we celebrate John’s contribution to our Canadian mountain community.
