Todd Guyn

Todd has had an incredible career spanning 3 decades in the Canadian Guiding Industry. Early in his career, Todd served as the ACMG Technical Director and chair of the Technical Committee. A nearly 20 year veteran of the mechanized ski industry in Canada, Todd soon transitioned into a role as Safety Manager for a Banff-based operation, a role that required the oversight of a team of more than 100+ Ski and Mountain Guides. At present Todd continues to work as a consultant advising the ACMG on modern risk management practices, including critical incident response and decision-making quality as well as the management of uncertainty in human decision-making process.

Here at Cloud Nine, Todd joins our Guests in the field on a variety of ski and rock programs, provides input and direction on our AST Level 1 + 2 courses, and casually advises on risk management theory and best practices. He's been an incredibly valued asset to all of our Guests, students, and the team of Guides here at Cloud Nine.

Owning a company in the ski/tour industry for over 10 years I've met many of the top ski guides in the country. I can tell you right now that if there was an avalanche safety Olympics, most of the Cloud9 Guides would be part of Team Canada and bring home multiple gold medals for the country.

The online Zoom class was well thought out and planned with a lot of great examples and media to help us visualize the concepts. The field day logistics were well planned out for COVID and was eye opening after being put under the tutelage of Todd, a legendary chief from the industry who was somehow pulled out of early retirement by the owner to teach us AST1. The field day location was PERFECT to see every single feature that they talked about in class. Everything was explained to the most miniscule detail to help us understand the risk and make decisions based on what data we could see in the snow and environment around us.

I cannot recommend them more highly and for the price you cannot go wrong.
