Mathieu Valade – Lead Guide

Mat is an IFMGA/ACMG Mountain Guide. He’s been involved with Mustang Powder since the very beginning. Starting off as an Assistant Lodge Manager he now spends two to three weeks guiding at Mustang annually. The deep Monashee powder and the terrain at Mustang is what keeps him coming back year after year.

When he’s away from his office at Mustang he spends his time ski touring, chasing waves, sea kayaking, mountain biking, climbing, and hanging out on the west coast.
