Safety is our number one priority. While mountain travel retains inherent risks such as weather, altitude and other natural occurrences beyond our control. Mountain Gurus professional guide staff strives to minimize risks by using proper route planning, camp selection, and acclimatization practices. We make every effort to provide our clients with the finest instruction and leadership. Whether participating on one of our international expeditions, treks and adventures, or Northwest climbs our guides draw from a wealth of knowledge, experience, and training. They are trained to uphold food preparation standards, skilled for backcountry medical emergencies, trained in avalanche safety, educated in altitude awareness, and versed in cultural considerations.
