Meet Steffi who received the Julbo / ACMG Scholarship

As the 2019 recipient of the Julbo/ACMG scholarship I would like to thank you for your support! Becoming a guide is a long and expensive process; financial help from the industry is very much appreciated.   To let you know whom you're supporting: I grew up in Germany, where my youth was spent training for, and competing in, sport climbing and bouldering. After a Master's degree and a subsequent sabbatical (Africa, middle East, Indochina, Asia, Australia) I found myself applying for permanent residence in Canada. I am a full time firefighter in a very busy Metro Vancouver department. My escape from the not-so-pretty incidents at work has always been climbing and skiing. In the future, I would like to share my mountain experiences with the people around me. Thanks again Steffi Mathar Lear more about the Association of Canadian Mountain Guide:  www.acmg.ca
