John Baldwin chosen as the 2019 Mountain Guides Ball Patron


Posted: Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 4:52pm

Congratulations to John Baldwin for being chosen as the 2019 Mountain Guides Ball Patron by the Alpine Club of Canada! Over the past forty years he has completed numerous first ascents and pioneered many remote long ski traverses. His connection with the mountains of BC is evident in “the sublime photography and thoughtfully written essays and personal impressions expressed in his two coffee table books, Mountains of the Coast (Harbour 1999) and Soul of Wilderness (2015), co-written with his wife, Linda Bily. Baldwin's passion and reverence for the beauty and the magic of high, wild glaciated landscapes illuminate the peace and the powerful emotions found in those experiences.” (Pique News Magazine).

The 2019 Mountain Guides Ball takes place on Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Rimrock Hotel in Banff.
