About Mountain Trip
In 1973, Mountain Trip was born of an Alaskan daydream. A love of wild places and a dedication to offering the highest quality experiences transformed the dream into a reality and now Mountain Trip is one of the world’s outstanding mountain guide services. We began guiding Denali expeditions in 1976 with the Denali Hang Gliding Expedition and for the past 39 years we have shared our passion for high mountains with thousands of climbers from around the world.
As a company, we invest in resources and training opportunities for our guides and we think that you will notice the difference this makes on our trips. Mountain Trip has always felt more like a family than a corporation and this is a big reason so many of our guides return year after year. As a result, our lead guides are among the most experienced and respected on Denali.
- Our 2014 guide staff have a collective 406 Denali expeditions under their boots.
- Our lead guides in 2014 averaged over 14 trips up the mountain.
- Everyone in our office staff has climbed Denali and can give you advice based on personal experience, not based on an informational cheat sheet.
The owners and staff of Mountain Trip are keenly aware that we are all working for the public good. It is an incredible honor to have the privilege to share wild places with our guests and to act as stewards of our natural mountain resources. We live simply and are a small enough company to be able to give every climber who contacts us personal service. Ask other climbers about us!
