About Beau Pruneau, Polar Guide and Expedition Leader
Born near Los Angeles, California, Beau moved to Canada when he was just one year old, growing up in the wilderness of Northern Ontario. From an early age, he learned to appreciate the great outdoors while learning wilderness skills such as camping, survival, navigation, and tracking. After graduating college with a diploma in Sustainable Outdoor Recreation Management - including studies in Biology, Wilderness Guiding, Wilderness Survival, Canoe Guiding, Marketing, Small Engine Mechanics, Woodworking and Business Management - he headed west to work in ski resorts in British Columbia.
It was here that he learned to drive just about every kind of vehicle, while exploring the mountains by snowboard, mountain bike and heli-board.
