Our top-notch mountain guides are highly trained, easy going professionals. All of our lead mountain guides working in technical terrain have received mountain guide training through outside guide training organizations such as the American Mountain Guides Association. Some are certified IFMGA/UIAGM international mountain guides - the highest level of mountain guide certification in the world.

Our California division, California Alpine Guides, is a leading mountain guide service in California based minutes from Yosemite National Park providing mountain climbing & ice climbing classes, rock climbing courses, backcountry skiing & Yosemite hiking tours throughout the Sierra Nevada of California. We are not a retail chain that does mountain guiding on the side...the profession of mountain guiding is something we take very seriously with great care and respect.

If you are looking for a mountain guide service that is personal and professional, you've landed in the right place. Enjoy browsing the experiences we have to offer to you!

Andrew and April were superb guides! Their warmth and kindness went far beyond the usual role of guides. They were strong, safe and highly professional. Also, April set up some great meals. My top rating to them both.” - Greg F.  
I had a great trip, and felt extremely safe and well taken care of the entire time. I’ll definitely be in touch about future trip possibilities!
