1 Your Guide

Kristen Murrell Learn more about me

I live in beautiful Nelson, BC! I like to do anything outside: backcountry skiing, rock-climbing, trail running, camping, and cycling. I’m passionate about hands-on, self-guided learning. My teaching philosophy is rooted in students feeling safe, supported, and in an environment where they can learn through doing.

I used to work as a hiking guide, taking guests to see fossils that are over 500 million years old in the Canadian Rockies!
