Peter Knamiller

Pete grew up in Yorkshire UK playing around in the woods and amongst the local rock. He started to ski at age 8, carrying he ski’s up a snow patch on the slide of Glencoe Scotland.

Since then Pete grew a love of all outdoor sports which has led to him trekking in Nepal , Bhutan and New Zealand, rock climbing in US, UK and France and Back-country skiing whereever he can.

The wilderness and love of adventure has finally settled Pete in the Yukon. From here Pete loves getting out with fellow mountain junkies on as many adventures as possible, and aims to try to follow and promote the advice of one of his icons, Monty Alford, who said "In the mountains, one must grow wise, to grow old". Well said Monty!

Tomoko Hagio

Tomoko was born in Japan, where school outings usually involved some hiking and camping in the mountains. Her love for hiking and scrambling as well as, just like many other Japanese, unexplainable fascination with the Rocky Mountains eventually brought her to Alberta in 2006. Since then, she started rock climbing, mountaineering, and backcounry skiing. She moved to Whitehorse in 2012 for a job opportunity after confirming that there are mountains (including some really big ones) around Whitehorse.

She would like to share with ACC Yukon her experience from other outdoor groups in Alberta that helped her to settle in to the communities and meet fellow mountain junkies.
