Hi! I’m your guide Will Mackaness.
And I love skiing and ski touring.. The feeling of surfing on snow brings excitement with each new season. I enjoy the slow and thoughtful mountain experience, cardio workout and tracksetting puzzles that only touring can provide.
I’m also a keen adventurer. I thrive from the diversity of new landscapes, places and cultures. The idea of skiing a new mountain range in a foriegn land brings me pure excitement.
My passion for skiing and adventure has led me to ski, study and work for the past 15 years in the Canadian Rockies, the Columbia and Coastal Mountains of British Columbia and the Japanese Alps.
I have a degree in Adventure Eco Tourism and an Adventure Guide diploma. I am a proud working member of the ACMG in the Ski Guiding and Rock guiding specialty streams. I have spent the last 10 years continually training and working in the Canadian ski guiding industry.
I’m excited to guide you in Japan for the best powder skiing adventure of your life!!
Success in my business is providing you with an experience that stands out from the rest. This means paying careful attention to the weather, snow conditions and knowing the terrain intimately. Although it’s also about creating opportunities that set all of us up for success. It’s about delivering the goods in just the right way.
