Marco Delesalle, owner and operator of Great Divide Mountaineering, is an internationally certified Mountain Guide ACMG/UIAGM. This is the only internationally recognized certification which allows guides to work worldwide. As a member of the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides, he has been guiding for 12 years in all disciplines of the mountains including ski touring, rock and ice climbing, and mountaineering.
His enthusiasm for outdoor pursuits started when he moved to Canmore at the age of six. Marco was brought up hiking, mountaineering, ski touring and speaking French, and was exactly where he wanted to be…in the mountains. Marco is living his dream working as a guide, because of the freedom, self-expression and sheer enjoyment of meeting people from around the world.
A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labour and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursures his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing , and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself,he always appears to be doing both.
