Eminently qualified and experienced AST Instructor and Guide Kieren Gaul is now on board the MRBC team as an AST instructor and backcountry guide. Originally from Canberra, Kieren is a certified Guide, with Canadian Ski Association and Canadian Avalanche Association Level 3 qualifications, current 80-hour first aid, and is a level 2 CSIA ski instructor. Since 2003 Kieren and his Canadian wife Paula have owned and run Big Red Cats, a cat skiing operation in Rossland BC, which is now one of the largest in the world. With their daughter now a national team ski racer training year-round based out of Thredbo, Kieren is now spending his Canadian off-season in Australia - fortunately for us! We have just announced additional dates for our avalanche courses in NSW, which Kieren will be conducting: 15-16 August / 12-13 September.
