Hi, I’m Jo (Jocelyn) Nadeau.

I first got introduced to the outdoors as a kid on our annual family fishing trips when my dad would systematically take us to the farthest and least easily accessible lakes North of Quebec City, year after year. Then came a summer out West after high school working the odd jobs in Banff and Lake Louise and discovering, in the process, our beautiful Rocky Mountains and all they have to offer. It didn’t take me long to head back West after I got my Bachelor of Education degree and settle in my haven: Jasper, Alberta.

I’ve been leading trips for the past 15 years as an ACMG hiking guide and as a high school teacher with a deep passion and commitment towards experiential outdoor education. I spend all of my free time playing in my incredible backyard hiking, running, biking, paddling, fishing, climbing, and skiing. I am a fully certified hiking guide (summer\winter) with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG), a member of the Interpretive Guides Association (IGA), an Advanced Adventure Medic\First Responder, and a retired 7-year veteran of the local fire brigade.

I love all kinds of adventures: classic canoeing circuits with family and friends, inspiring hiking trips with guests, solo mountaineering missions exploring new areas, climbing wild frozen waterfalls with a solid partner, and ski touring base camps and traverses with a motivated team. Looking forward to sharing time with some of you on your next Black Feather adventure.
