Trent Schumann, B.Sc.
Trent is the owner of Mountain Quest. He left a career in
corporate computer and change management consulting to pursue his dream of helping
people and companies achieve their full potential. His time
in large corporations gives him an "insider's" ability
to relate to the challenges faced by companies and the work
teams that make them successful. He is the "idea guy"
behind our innovative programs. Hear
a recent radio interview featuring Trent.
Corey has been facilitating team leadership challenges since
1988. His facilitation experience ranges from young offenders to corporate executives, bringing them to realize
their own personal road-blocks and potentials through experiential education.
Corey also injects a lot of fun into everything
he does and often scans television programs such as “Amazing Race"
and "Survivor” for new ideas. (Some clients even say he bears
a strange resemblance to Survivor host Jeff Probst!)
Keith's specialty is in working with high-performance sales teams. His wry sense

Ed Hoffman, B.Sc.
Ed is an environmental consultant who also happens to
love taking people out into nature. His vast knowledge of
the wilderness combined with his zest for life and gentle
personality make him eminently qualified to lead many of
our outings. In his spare time he often goes scrambling
up many of the peaks in the Rockies with his friend Ron
Quaife, who happens to be one of our other guides (see
Ron Quaife, M.Sc.
Ron is also an environmental consultant who has spent
much of his time in the arctic working on wilderness
safety and environmental projects. Ron is one of those
people who gets more done in a year than most people do
in a lifetime. He has climbed many of the world's great
peaks, but was unfortunately turned back several times by
weather on the Matterhorn. He is now plotting his next
attempt. Don't let this fool you, however, as Ron gets
great pleasure from introducing you to the wilderness at
whatever pace you're comfortable with.
