Ryan Foster

Ryan is a Principal and managing partner of Axis Mountain Technical. Ryan
was raised on a remote cattle ranch in BC’s West Chilcotin where responsibility,
problem solving and out of the box solutions were daily creed.
Being raised in a ranching and logging family, Ryan spent his early ‘paid’
career in the BC Forest Industry pursuing technical and leadership positions
in both silviculture and harvesting. Remote mountains and high risk
settings have been a common thread for Ryan’s personal and professional
life, eventually leading him to spending 10 years in field of mountain
safety and avalanche risk management. Over time Ryan has transitioned
to embrace what is the ultimate challenge – mountain construction. When
not at home with his amazing wife and daughters, Ryan enjoys crushing
tough projects with the truly exceptional Axis team.
