Guide - Spencer


Where did you grow up?
I grew up in North Bay, Ontario.


Where is home for you now?
My home for the past few years has been Jasper, rafting and skiing has kept me busy there. However, I made the move out here to Golden for the whitewater!


What’s your favourite river?
My favourite river is the Kicking Horse of course!


When you’re not on the Kicking Horse River, where else can you be found this summer?
If I’m not rafting the Kicking Horse, I might be playing some Dungeons and Dragons!


How many years have you been raft guiding?
I’ve been raft guiding for 6 years now!


What attracted you to the sport of whitewater rafting?
I have always been on the water. Spending a lot of my childhood sprint canoeing and kayaking.
Becoming a coach and gaining experience working and teaching others. Finally for my 17 th birthday, my
family and I went to the Ottawa River and I fell in love with whitewater ever since!


How do you spend your winters?
In the winter season I’ll be ski patrolling at Marmot Basin in Jasper and skiing the peaks around town on
my days off!


What’s your favourite rapid on the Kicking Horse?
It’s got to be Roller Coaster!!!!
