Photos of Trips
Here are links to a couple of photo albums from the trips I have guided at Burnie Glacier Chalet:
I started Sawback in 1995, running mountain hiking trips for groups. Since
then I've expanded programming to offer just about any mountaineering
adventure you could imagine.
Sawback was founded by Tom Wolfe, who is an ACMG Mountain Guide and member of the
International Federation of Mountain Guides (IFMGA).
How can I book a trip?
Email us or phone us to enquire about a trip you'd like to do. We'll offer suggestions
and find you a guide for the days you're interested in.
Are you a Guide's Service?
Sawback is primarily a small one-man operation. While there are guides who work with
large operations in Western Canada there is also a small, co-operative community of independent guides
who pass work they can't do on to others who can. If I can't join you in your mountain
adventure I will refer you to another independent mountain guide who will.
