Matt Yaki  Owner, Guide, Instructor, Operations Manager, Marketing Manager

Matt is a passionate mountain biker, trail advocate and young entrepreneur who works very hard at living the dream here in Revelstoke, BC. Having grown up as a skier and mountain biker in rural Southern Ontario, Matt developed a strong desire to live life to the fullest amongst the big mountains of British Columbia, and what a life he's created!

When he isn't guiding or coaching in the summertime, he is likely riding with friends, exploring big backcountry rides or organizing trail work and social events as a member of the Revelstoke Cycling Association's DH and XC Committees. Matt spends the winter months developing and planning our summer business, skiing powder snow, and working with Eagle Pass Heliskiing.

Matt enjoys meeting people from all over the world and most of all he loves to share his knowledge, experience, and passion for mountain biking with all of our guests!


Sahana Browning  Owner, Guide, Instructor, Office Manager, Operations Assistant, Webmaster

Born and raised in the Kootenays, Sahana grew up playing in the mountains - hiking, biking, climbing (mostly trees), skiing, swimming in Kootenay Lake, camping, and horse-back riding. It only made sense for her to start an adventure tourism company, enabling her to introduce people to our amazing outdoor playground here in Revelstoke! She loves to see the expression on guests' faces after showing them her favourite trails.

If you can't find Sahana hanging out in the forest ripping it up on her mountain bike, she's probably holed up in her office handling logistics, buried in paperwork, or developing websites (including this very website you are reading now!) In winter, she spends as much time as possible playing in the snow.
