Our Team - Dedicated, adventurous people

Heather Davis

Owner & Guide

Heather is the oil for our operation, she keeps things moving and people smiling, growing up with a team of brothers she can handle herself too. Heather can often be found with her nose in the flowers or fingers digging for rocks. She doesn't have to be the first up the slope, but she will be first to open the wine at the end of the day. Her biggest fear is the fear of failure.

Your Questions

All adventures have * On-trail snacks * Use of hiking poles * A local, professional ACMG Guide * Small group sizes. Each adventure is quite different; however, we always have a pocket-full of snacks. A list of what is provided during each adventure is included in the adventure description.
The weather in the mountains varies and moves quite fast: rain one minute and sunshine the next. It might even be raining in town and then the sun is shining on the trail. So, we go out rain or shine! There is so much to learn and we will make your experience as enjoyable as possible, even if the weather is not favourable. We do not put our guests in a situation where they are unsafe. An email will be sent out to our guests if we cancel a trip. Refunds will only be given if Uplift Adventures cancels the adventure due to safety concerns.
We value our wildlife very much! Our guides are very knowledgeable and will give you a run down of what to do to avoid an encounter and what to do if we do. Our guides carry bear spray and ensure that our group stays together.
There is a 48 hour cancellation policy, which allows you to change/cancel or refund your booking up to 48 hours outside your booked adventure (up to 7 days for group bookings).
We do not expect that our guests tip our guides. However, if you feel as though your guide did a great job, then we always appreciate a tip and a solid pat on the back.

The Crowsnest Pass

We are proud to call Crowsnest Pass, AB our home and humbled for it to be the location of our business. Crowsnest Pass is located 8km north of the Castle Park, 10 minutes from the BC border and about 1.5hr from Waterton National Park. Crowsnest Pass is a small community built up of five coal mining towns located in the Rocky Mountains of southwest Alberta. Here, we are mainly surrounded by montane landscapes and vistas of the Canadian Rockies.
