Canmore Cave Tours - Cave Guides

 

Our cave guides are very special people!   As well as their professional and enthusiastic nature, their qualifications are numerous and rigorous. Every cave guide has an up to date back-country wilderness first aid certificate, and cave rescue training. All guides are equipped with cell phones in case an emergency arises. We network with the local mountain rescue unit in Kananaskis Country.

  • Wilderness First Aid Certification
  • ACRO (Alberta Cave Rescue Organization) Certification
  • International and Local Cave Experience

Each of our cave guides possess excellent general knowledge of the local geology and geography and of course lots of caving experience. They started out their guiding careers as cavers – enthusiastic, adventurous explorers of the mysterious subterranean world of caves. They have caved locally in the Canadian Rockies of Alberta, British Columbia, in the U.S.A. and internationally e.g. Peru, Cuba, & Mexico.

The caver’s motto is:
  • Take Nothing But Pictures
  • Leave Nothing But Footprints
  • Kill Nothing But Time

  • Chas is the former owner and operator of Canmore Caverns Ltd and has been an enthusiastic caver for almost 40 years. Since his early days as a ‘pot-holer’ in England, his caving exploits have taken him to many of the karst areas on earth; to name a few places – Cuba, Barbados, Belize, Mexico, United States, Norway, Indonesia, Australia, China, Vietnam, Bhutan, England, Wales, Ireland, France, Spain, Turkey, Papua New Guinea and Canada.

    After 25 years with Canmore Caverns, Chas and his wife Pam are now enjoying their well-earned retirement. Chas is our local cave guru and will always be an important part of the Canmore Caverns family. He can now often be spotted creating new climbing routes on sunny summer days in the Bow Valley, another great passion of his.

    He has even already written his own guide book called “A Climber’s Guide to Kid Goat Crag” which is available locally.
