Meet Our Guides
Climbing requires trust. Whether you are attempting a big, cold mountain or a local single-pitch of rock or ice, you are putting your trust in the hands of your guide and the guide service that supports them. All Mountain Trip guides hold current medical certifications and are trained at high standards through our own internal programs as well as through courses offered by the American Mountain Guides Association and other industry trainers. Additionally, we place tremendous value on experience, as illustrated by our company guidelines of not allowing any lead Denali guide to work for Mountain Trip with less than five previous expeditions up the mountain. Experienced guides not only know the terrain, but they know how to offer you the most enjoyable experience possible in that terrain. Climbing is serious and you should have high standards for whomever you choose as your guide.
