Helping people connect with wilderness

John Baldwin has been exploring the Coast Mountains of western British Columbia for over 40 years. His books, maps and photographs describe this incredible wilderness.

Exploring the Coast Mountains on Skis is a guidebook to ski mountaineering. 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. Soul of Wilderness, by John Baldwin and Linda Bily, is a lavish volume of photos and essays featuring the wild beauty of western British Columbia and Alaska. Mountains of the Coast is a photographic portrayal of the intense beauty of the Coast Mountains. A selection of images is presented in a gallery.

The recently added Spearheads Terrain Gallery is an online resource that illustrates the ski touring terrain in the Spearhead and Fitzsimmons Ranges behind Whistler and Blackcomb ski resorts in Garibaldi Park. It is meant to be used with Backcountry Whistler.

Coastal Hiking maps are custom topographic route maps for hiking the North Coast Trail, Nootka Island, Hesquiat Peninsula and Tatchu Peninsula on the west coast of Vancouver Island.
