Switching Gear Inc. is an outdoor sports consignment store in Canmore, AB. They carry a very wide range of products at all times for all sorts of mountain activities. They also carry unicycles and very kindly offered me a discount on my touring unicycle. 


Located in Canmore, Alberta, Yamnuska Mountain Adventures is a premier provider of mountaineering, ice climbing, rock climbing, backcountry skiing, avalanche training and trekking experiences in the Canadian Rockies. For 40 years, they have hosted clients from Canada and all over the world. As one of the world's best mountaineering schools and mountain guiding companies, they run trips, programs and courses from beginner to expert level. They have some of the top mountain guides in Canada and consider the mountains of British Columbia and Alberta to be their home, classroom and playground. 

Yamnuska Backcountry Kitchen sells dehydrated meals and full service trip catering refined as a result of over 35 years experience in the backcountry. Their dehydrated meals are cooked in small batches in their tiny kitchen in Canmore. They use high quality ingredients and spices that are designed to balance taste, dehydrated meal weight, nutritional content and calories. From the stove, the meals go into dehydrators where moisture is removed over a period of up to 18 hours. Most companies just add a combination of freeze dried ingredients and spices into a bag and call that a meal! Not Yamnuska - they stew the flavour right into your dinner.

Yamnuska is generously providing me with a selection of dinners to support me on my trip.
