This is a trailer for a documentary that hopefully will be out soon. It is about the Swiss guides who played a big part in the history of this area.
The guides were brought to this area by CP Railway to be mountain guides beginning in 1899 through until 1955. They climbed the highest peaks in the Canadian Rockies. Some became the first members of the Alpine Club of Canada. I am looking forward to the finished documentary but this trailer gives you a good idea of what it will look like. The guy at the start of his is Rudi Gertsch who owns and operates Purcell Heli Skiing which is based here in Golden.
Ken along with his wife Lori are the owners and operators of Vagabond Lodge at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.
