Ken Wylie


Ken is an IFMGA guide, educator and author. His skill set ranges between the first ice climbing enchainment of Terminator, Replicant and Sea of Vapours in the Canadian Rockies to developing adventure programs to help the military veterans and homeless in his community. He has been on faculty at the University of Calgary, Mount Royal University and Thompson Rivers University in adventure-based academic programs.

Through the skills of ski touring, rock climbing and mountaineering Ken pays credence to the human lessons along the way, helping his clients gain self-knowledge and leadership efficacy. Ken has developed the concept of "Adventure Literacy" based on the idea that the mountains are always presenting information to us through the process of adventure. He teaches his clients how to metabolize adventure events in order to harvest experience. Ken is the author of "Buried" 2014, which is about his path navigating through mountain tragedy.
