Brent is a certified ACMG IFMGA Mountain Guide, an officer in the Canadian Reserve Army, and the owner of not one but TWO successful businesses! Outside of guiding and training people for mountain experiences, Brent has started a backcountry food business that NASA now uses for their astronauts!

Brent was born and grew up in the Canadian Prairies. From the first time he saw the mountains, he was captivated. Brent joined the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) at 17 years of age. During French language training in Quebec, he discovered rock climbing. The following winter, he completed an introductory ice climbing course in Quebec City. The passion was born.

Brent continued to climb while employed with the CAF around the world. Brent moved to Canmore in 2002 and completed his rock guide training and exam by 2003. After a seven-year hiatus focused on business and family, he continued his certification, completing his Mountain Guide (MG) certification in April 2017 with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG). Peters is also a Level 2 ski instructor with the Canadian Ski Instructors’ Alliance (CSIA). He serves part-time with the King’s Own Calgary Regiment, an armored unit of the Canadian Army Reserve, and deployed on tours to Bosnia-Herzegovina and Afghanistan.

Brent has climbed and skied extensively across America and Europe, including Mt. Columbia, Mont Blanc, Denali, and Aconcagua.

Here are Brent’s two companies:

PeakStratagem teaches the skills, decision-making, and confidence needed to safely and confidently explore the outdoors. They have developed a unique and extensive curriculum for technical skills, trip planning, climbing partner communication, and risk management that will make your adventures safe and successful.

PeakEats creates fully customizable, super light, compact, dehydrated meals without any preservatives or extra salt. They prepare almost all of our ingredients and spices independently and make all of our meals to order. This means we can modify our recipes to cater to any food allergies or preferences your group may have while providing you with a tasty and nutritious meal. Their beef is grass-fed and grass-finished Alberta beef from a family ranch. They use the ripest fruits and vegetables to maximize the taste and nutrition.
