Introduction to Peter Tucker

My background is diverse: outdoor educator, wildlife biologist, manager of Mountain Equipment Coop, West African drum teacher and presently Executive Director of the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides. I love to mountain bike, road bike, climb, ski, paddle, hike – pretty much anything that gets me outside. In leadership roles for 35 years, my style is kind of akin to that of a conductor – orchestra, not train. As a conductor, my aim is to know the whole score and bring in the right players at the right time, with sensitivity and a finely tuned ear. Truth is, though, that this association is running so well and has so many amazing players, my work will be largely to clear obstacles and stay out of the way. And if I can help us move forward, particularly in collaborating with the community to help it grow and prosper, then I’ll be happy.

I hope to see you out on the trails. Look for the guy waving a baton like a wizard’s wand, hoping it will help him get up the next hill.
