Philip Smith literally grew up in the Canadian Rockies. One of his earliest memories, albeit now indistinct, was that of toddling into the icy cold waters of Banff’s aptly named Ink Pots at a moment when his parents were distracted by one of his four siblings. Since those days, he has skied along the Rockies’ rugged spine for weeks at a stretch, hiked and biked thousands of kilometers of wilderness trails, and climbed to hundreds of Rocky summits – making the odd first ascent along the way. He has inside knowledge of an embarrassing number of glacial crevasses, and the local rescue services. He counts himself as incredibly fortunate to now be able to share this same Rockies’ experience with his kids, Joshua and Julia, and wife Karen. Often they go back to the same hang-outs Philip discovered as a kid. When not doing so, or planning a family trip to some far flung part of the range, they might all be stringing a Tyrolean traverse in a front yard that overlooks Canmore’s fabulous Three Sisters Mountain and Rundle Range. Or teaching neighbors’ kids the delicate art of rappelling from a nearby tree-house. A widely acclaimed photographer, filmmaker and author of the book Mountain Photography (Heritage House), Philip has spent much of his career life traveling to destinations around the world. Globe trotting travels always see him come back to the Canadian Rockies though. For Philip - and his family - they continue to be home.
