Autumnal beauty in the San Juan Mountains

Fall is officially underway, with golden aspens, crisp temperatures and clear skies.  Join Mountain Trip for the Telluride Via Ferrata, one of the most exciting day trips in Colorado. Recently completed in Spring 2020, Mountain Trip is also permitted to guide the new Ouray Via Ferrata. We also offer a variety of rock climbing trips in the area, as well as ascents of local 13,000′ and 14,000′ peaks, and guided hiking. Please inquire about snow considerations if booking an ascent of a local 14er. We will be guiding rock climbing and via ferrata as long as weather conditions allow, but please inquire with the office directly if you’re planning a trip for mid-October or beyond.


Colorado has won more and more attention for its rugged high peaks, world-class trails, and fun climbing.  Join us to explore arguably the prettiest corner of the state — the San Juan Mountains in the southwest.  Our headquarters is nestled in the heart of downtown Telluride, home to great backcountry skiing, a lifetime of ice climbs, spectacular hikes, 13 and 14,000′ summits, the famous Telluride Via Ferrata, as well as the all new Ouray Via Ferrata! For adventurous visitors to Telluride, the Via Ferrata is a must-do.


Mountain Trip was born in Alaska, and we have helped pioneer how big Alaskan peaks are guided.  As an authorized concessionaire of Denali National Park and Preserve, we have led more climbers up Denali in the past decade than any other guide service. If your goal is to climb Denali, talk with us.  Let us show you the reasons why more climbers trust Mountain Trip for their mountaineering expeditions, big route climbing and skills courses in the Alaska Range.


It’s a vast, mountainous world out there. Mount Everest, Mount Vinson, Aconcagua, Carstensz Pyramid, and the other “Seven Summits” are all attainable by the passionate and dedicated mountaineer.  Our guides and international guiding program are recognized as one of the top in the world.  Where do you want to go? Mountain Trip’s mountain climbing expeditions and adventure trekking experiences await!
