Like all Peak Mountain Guides programs, our alpine programs emphasize your learning and enjoyment from start to finish.

Personalized Service
You will be in contact with your guide from early in the reservation process so he or she can be a resource to you while planning and preparing for your trip. Not only does this ensure we create the perfect trip for you, it also allows you and your guide to develop a relationship before venturing into the mountains.

Communication and Advice
Do you have a question about which boots, harnesses, or ice axes work best for alpine mountaineering? No problem, just send a quick email and you can get a professional recommendation directly from your AMGA certified guide. This level of personalized service, and commitment to the success of your experience, sets us apart from other guide services.
