Florian Geier
My home is in northern Italy, in the Dolomites where I've been raised and started to love the mountains and outdoors in general. I spend my last years travelling Asia, working and traveling in Australia, studying in Sweden, on my exchange in Ontario and now by moving to Vancouver. I am passionate about all kind of winter sports, skiing snowboarding, cross- country as well as hiking and climbing and I joined this club to meet people who share this passion and organize these activities.

iCal Administrator
Kayla Stevenson
Kayla Stevenson has enjoyed hiking, backcountry skiing and climbing in the mountains for many years. Her favourites include the Rockies, Purcells, Selkirks, Columbias, the Coast Mountains, and several of the West Coast ‘volcanos’. Her most memorable mountain experiences have been multi-day high traverses in remote backcountry, and leading a group of hikers on their first roped climb up Mt. Baker. She joined the Alpine Club of Canada in 1995 and has been active in both the Vancouver Island and Vancouver Sections, along the way attending several General Mountaineering Camps and other National camps. Although she has stayed active as a volunteer, in more recent years she has taken up somewhat gentler pursuits, including cycling.

Haberl Hut Committee

Liz Scremin
Liz Scremin started hiking, backpacking, climbing, canoeing and skiing in the early 1970s and was introduced to kayaking in the early 1980s. She joined the ACC in 1985 and found the Club a great source for new techniques, trips and friends. Liz served 5 years as Vancouver Section Chair from 1999 to 2004. From 2002 to 2006, she worked to design and construct the Club's Jim Haberl Hut in the Tantalus Range. Liz's favourite trips are spring ski traverses in the Coast Mountains (the Neve, Spearhead, Powdercap, Pemberton Icecap, Misty Icefields, McBride Range, and Lillooet Icecap). She is fascinated with the Arctic and since 1990, has done numerous backpack, canoe and ski trips in Alaska (Juneau Icecap, Glacier Bay, ANWR), Yukon (Kluane, Ivavvik), NWT (Banks Island), Nunavut (Ellesmere Island, Baffin Island) and Iceland. Greenland, Svalbard and Kamchatka are still on her list. Liz enjoys outdoor photography, drawing and painting.

Hood to Rainier to Baker) to Mt. McKinley in Alaska, Galdøpiggen (highest peak in Scandinavia) in Norway to Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa, and traveling and meeting people in other countries.

Rob Brusse
Rob Brusse – Past Chair Vancouver Section Born in Amsterdam, our family immigrated to Canada when I was 4 and settled in Greater Vancouver. While at school, was introduced to outdoor adventuring through YMCA Summer Camp “Howdy” and the cabins the “Y” maintained at First Lake on Hollyburn Mtn, and I became acquainted with the challenges of skiing on the convoluted hummocks of Mt Seymour through the Burnaby Parks & Recreation Ski program. At University joined VOC where my budding interest in outdoor adventuring, (along with an aversion to classes and exams) had an opportunity to blossom. Early scrambles on the Lions, hikes to Fissile, and climbs on Alpha, Sky Pilot, and Shuksan along with back country tours over the Nevé & Spearhead fed an appetite for more adventures locally and further afield. VOC Christmas trips to the Rockies where we’d stay at the Stanley Mitchell and Elizabeth Parker huts made joining the Alpine Club worthwhile. As my own family grew we made use of Club facilities at Canmore for excursions in the Rockies, and frequently the Wheeler and Parker huts for scrambling & hiking trips with extended family & friends. Locally the Vancouver section provided an incredible platform to get out regularly on local trips and to meet others who shared my passions and interests for among other things, expeditions from Fairweather and Logan to Changtse and the Matterhorn. Over the years, I’ve had the good fortune to have stayed at numerous National and local club facilities, attend GMC’s and participate in the North Face Program. Education Graduated from high school in Vancouver and went on to UBC where I majored in VOC. A relentless proclivity for being at Sphinx camp when I should have been writing exams or spending the night (yet again) in the rain on Baker when a critical assignment was due resulted in an invitation from the Registrar that I not darken the doorstep of his august institution until such time as I had reviewed and come to a more copacetic settlement on my life`s priorities. Took some time to consider those priorities but got distracted again when, with a group of friends got involved with mimicking, on the local scene, the operations of a nearby American retail sporting goods outlet. Obtained a BA Honours from SFU (Accounting, Economics & Marketing) Employment Self-employed Accountant CGA Evenings and Weekends I’ve served the local section for longer than I care to admit as an event and camp coordinator and for over a dozen years served on the local executive as Treasurer. For the past few years I`ve been chair of the Vancouver Section and National Board rep. These last couple of years have been particularly engaging and rewarding as we work hard at the local level (and appear to be meeting with considerable success) to once more align how the section meets the needs of its existing and prospective members in light of new technological opportunities and changing preferences of our core supporters. When not writing reports or attending meetings I love to get out on weekend trips and do so often.

Neil Davis
I enjoy climbing and hiking with occasional sea kayaking adventures, though I have to confess it's been a while since my last trip in a kayak. I've been climbing for nearly 15 years, mostly trad for the last few years and mostly sport before that; climbing is my main squeeze. I also ski in the winter, both on resort and backcountry. I've skied my whole life, but have only been backcountry skiing for about the last 4 or 5 years. If it is outdoors doing an activity and there is a smidge of wilderness involved, I can be happy!

Olga Turok
I got seriously into the outdoors after taking a rock climbing and mountaineering course with the Federation of Mountain Clubs of BC 21 years ago. Shortly after that, I became a member of the Alpine Club of Canada and, until now, I have been enjoying the outdoors in the company of like thinking friends. Being on the Social Committee makes me come to the meetings, where enjoy the slide presentations, visiting with my friends and getting new information first hand

William Sims
For the first 40 years of my life, the sea was my first passion, Mountains became important in the 80s. Dogs have always been an important part of my life, but age turned them into 'flatlanders' and since I didn't always want to go alone, I decided to find out more about the Alpine Club, an organization I had known about for many years. I've been a member of the ACC for 3 short years, but a rewarding 3 years it has been. I've met many good people and made good friends. Hiking has become a year round activity, combined with snowshoeing, backpacking, scrambling, and an interest in mountaineering and rock climbing.
