Why climb, ski or trek with International Alpine Guides?

Our Mountain Guides

Your safety is our highest priority. Our top-notch mountain guides are highly trained & easy going professionals with many years of experience climbing, skiing and trekking throughout the world.

Our lead mountain guides working in technical terrain have professional training through the American Mountain Guides Association. Some are IFMGA international mountain guides - the highest level of mountain guide certification in the world. Many companies claim to have the best guides, but can they back it up with professional guide’s training & certifications?

Our Value

We strive to provide a better value on all of trips. Our domestic mountain climbing trips & courses in California include nearly all the gear you will require. All you need are your clothes!

We are a full service mountain guiding company that is large enough to handle complex logistics around the world yet small enough to provide personal attention. All at a cost that reflects a better value.

Your Experience

When you book a mountain adventure with IAG you will be dealing with the ownership of the company… IFMGA guide Dave Miller. With his 18 years of mountain guiding experience, Dave has personally developed all of our trips and courses himself and is fully invested in their success.

Our mountain adventures have low guide to guest ratios and low overall group sizes for your enjoyment. On our international trips there are usually no more than six total participants ensuring you a more personal experience.

What our guests are saying:

“The professionalism displayed on our trip was definitely a step above what we experienced elsewhere.” - Peter

“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!
