Matt Gunn

Matt Gunn is mountain keener living in Squamish, BC with his wife Dora and two daughters. He’s passionate about getting into the alpine with his friends and family and spends more time than he should day dreaming about the next adventure. He’s the author of Scrambles in Southwest British Columbia and Hikes Around Invermere.

Crowded Coast Mountains

Is your favourite alpine lake a zoo? Have the hoards found your secret powder stash? Wilderness recreation is exploding in the South Coast and people are struggling to adapt. Matt will share an optimistic view of this reality. It’s not that hard to escape the crowds and find adventure if you know where to look, and that person who just scooped your ski line probably has more in common with you than not. How can we, as individuals and a community, evolve to thrive in this new context?
