Our mountaineering courses are taught by professional guides who work in the mountains year-round. We are committed to helping you develop the technical skills to climb big mountains around the world. Our courses meet the prerequisites for a guided ascent of Denali, Rainier, Ama Dablam, and other mountaineering objectives in the Great Ranges. Our instructors will teach you the most efficient techniques to stay warm and comfortable during a winter expedition, how to build a snow anchor and haul a climber out of a crevasse, how to navigate a glacier safely, & many more big mountain skills to help you reach new heights.
We offer mountaineering courses in all of our winter venues throughout the season, for your convenience. The Introduction to Mountaineering is a 4 day course that covers the fundamentals of overnight winter mountaineering along with the technical skillset required for winter alpine climbing. Conditions permitting, we culminate our course with an ascent of a nearby peak to put our newly developed skills to the test. Below is an outline of our popular mountaineering courses.
