Andrew Nugara was born in Rugby, England, and moved to Canada in 1979. He earned bachelor degrees in classical guitar performance and in education and presently teaches high school physics, mathematics and music. With his brother, Mark, Andrew started to hike and scramble up mountains in 2001. Shortly after, Andrew and Mark began to pursue other forms of mountain recreation such as alpine climbing, technical climbing and ice climbing. Scrambling, however, has always remained the primary focus for the brothers. In subsequent years, snowshoeing took on a more prominent role in Andrew and Mark’s winter travels, yielding two books in that field. Since 2001 Andrew has completed over 700 mountain ascents. Along with the new edition of More Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies, Andrew is also the author of Snowshoeing in the Canadian Rockies (RMB, 2011) and A Beginner’s Guide to Snowshoeing in the Canadian Rockies (RMB, 2012). He lives in Calgary, Alberta.
