Associate Instructors


Denise Martin

We are so lucky to have Denise Martin on the Polar Expedition Training Team, there are very few guides in the world with her level of experience. 

Denise has guided multiple last degrees and full expeditions to both the North and South Poles and was the first Canadian woman to do both. She worked 8 seasons guiding on Antarctica; she has been the Program Director for Outward Bound Canada; and she operated a Yukon based company for many years guiding (skiing and dog-sledding) all over the Canadian Arctic, including a 3-week crossing of Ellesmere Island and Lonely Planet film support on Baffin Island. We think she is a bona fide bad ass!


Camilla Ianke

We are excited to be collaborating with the amazingly talented Camilla Ianke on our Avalanche Safety courses.
