Ski Guide - Banff, AB
“Years ago, Hjertaas became well known in the Banff region through International Freeskiing Association competitions, then for his coaching prowess as the Rocky Mountain Freeriders head coach. Now with M-T-N, Hjertaas spends nearly every day out in the Canadian Rockies showing skiers dreamlike backcountry terrain. Needless to say, he holds fantastic insight as to why Banff is one of skiing’s greatest destinations.” Freeskier Magazine, 2018

Martin grew up in Montreal and when he’s not out in the hills he makes his home in Nelson BC. Martin learned to ski in the rolling hills of the Laurentians just north of Montreal. Like many other transplants to this side of the country Martin was lured by the call of bigger mountains and deeper snow. After a few ski bum seasons he starting working in the ski industry and never looked back. His passion for ski mountaineering has taken him all over the world in search of classic and first descents.
