Ty Mills

Lead Guide

Ty Mills has called Golden and the Columbia Mountains home for the last 16 years. Spending time in Salmon Arm and Vancouver prior to that. He love's to tell the story of moving to Golden for one winter season and never leaving.  After spending 5 years racking up experience around Golden and the Rogers Pass, he got his first taste of guiding at Baldface Catskiing. After working his way up the ranks employed at several other operations and as an Avalanche Forecaster, Ty found his way to a young Eagle Pass, and has been a staple ever since. Ty is still a passionate ski touring guide and divides his winters between Eagle Pass as well as working abroad on adventure ski trips. Ty's stoke for the mountains is contagious and he absolutely loves sharing his passion with people and helping them discover their inner powder shredder. " I love guiding because I get to hang out in the mountains with like minded people and share amazing experiences of a lifetime with them. " 

The rest of the year Ty can be found Mountain Biking , Fly Fishing , Gardening and enjoying life in Golden.
