Alpine Artistry

In the course of pur­su­ing his pas­sion for wild, remote places in west­ern Canada’s moun­tains, Glen Boles stood on close to 600 sum­mits, took tens of thou­sands of pho­tographs, made numer­ous first ascents and even helped name a few peaks.

As a mem­ber of the fabled Griz­zly Group, Glen shared a rich and spe­cial cama­raderie with his climb­ing com­pan­ions. As a val­ued City of Cal­gary Water­works Depart­ment employ­ee, enthu­si­as­tic vol­un­teer with the Cal­gary Moun­tain Res­cue group, the Lake Louise Ski Friends and as a gen­er­ous board mem­ber with the Cochrane and Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion, Glen unselfish­ly gave his time, his tal­ents and his good-natured com­pa­ny.

An artist who express­es his love and pas­sion for the moun­tain world through his exquis­ite pen and ink draw­ings and acrylic paint­ings, Glen Boles shares the mag­ic of the alpine in a gen­er­ous and heart­felt way.

Climber, artist guide­book author, vol­un­teer, stead­fast com­pan­ion and wor­thy recip­i­ent of numer­ous awards and hon­ours, Glen Boles exem­pli­fies a life lived in true alpine artistry.
