Patrick Tolchard

Patrick Tolchard moved to the Columbia Valley in 2014 to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. He started working with ski resorts in 2009 and decided to pursue an education in outdoor recreation. In 2013 Patrick graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership, this is what brought him to the Columbia Valley. After 3 years of hiking the Bugaboos, climbing the Purcell’s and swimming the springs, this is where he had to be. Since moving to the Columbia Valley Patrick spends his free time exploring the area from valley to peak at all times of the year. He is now working with Fairmont Hot Springs Resort as a Special Events Coordinator and has developed guided interpretive programd for resort guests.
