Winter Paradise in the San Juan Mountains

Winter is perhaps our favorite season here at our headquarters in Telluride, Colorado. The sun is generally shining (when the snow isn’t falling), the ice routes are long, inspiring and challenging, the skiing is varied and abundant, and the views are top-notch. From skiing out the gate at Telluride Ski Resort, to climbing ice for the first time, our experienced guides can help you maximize your time in southwest Colorado. We offer a variety of avalanche courses, ice climbing in the Ouray Ice Park, guided overnight hut trips, mountaineering courses and more. All of our trips for the upcoming winter can be enjoyed on a private basis, and everything we offer is customizable. Reach out to us for more details and think snow!


Colorado has won more and more attention for its rugged high peaks, light powder, sunshine and phenomenal ice 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, ski descents, 13 and 14,000′ summits. Join us for an avalanche course, an overnight hut trip, or the Telluride Via Ferrata in the summertime.


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!
