Helping people connect with wilderness

John Baldwin has been exploring the Coast Mountains of western British Columbia for over 35 years. His books, maps and photographs describe this incredible wilderness.

Exploring the Coast Mountains on Skis is a guidebook to ski mountaineering. Mountains of the Coast is a photographic portrayal of the intense beauty of the Coast Mountains. Backcountry Whistler, Duffey Lake, Coquihalla Summit, and Backcountry Shames are custom topographic route maps for ski mountaineering.

His photographs have been published widely in magazines and books and a selection of images is presented in a gallery.
