Bill is a true Vancouver Island local, born and raised in Campbell River. He has taught all of the climbing and mountaineering courses in COLT. He has a complete climbing resume that includes steep rock routes to high mountain travel, alpine ski touring to ice climbing. In the off season, Bill works as an avalanche forecaster and ski patroller at Mt. Washington Alpine Resort where he combines his interest in first aid, search and rescue and helping people enjoy the great outdoors. It doesn’t hurt that he gets to ski most of the day too. Bill’s expertise and genuine interest in helping people are great assets to COLT. His attention to detail and organized teaching progression provides students with incentives to learn the finer points of climbing and mountain travel.
