Program Design



Cloud Nine Guides


Cloud Nine Guides is a Mountain School and Internationally Certified Guide Service located in the Canadian Rockies, and they cover activities from rock climbing to ski touring. They would like a student to design a template for a new Program Guide for tourists and other potential clients, that could be available in hotels and from their business locations.

What exactly is a program guide? An example can be found here.

If you're interested in hiking, rock-climbing, skiing, mountaineering or just want to do some design, this is a brilliant opportunity for you to make some contacts, learn about these activities, and show-off your talents.
