We took a full day glacier hike with Ben out on the Root glacier. We were actually there the first day they offered tours and my wife and I ended up being the first ones out with Ben this year. Our own little private glacier tour! It was an amazing 8 hours. Everyone on staff was helpful and made sure we had fun and were safe. Ben took us exploring around to see blue pools and rivers and crevasses. He made sure we knew the best way to hike up and downhill in crampons and we never had a problem. It was especially fun to go at the beginning of the season because Ben our guide was also discovering what was out there for the season. He was also very knowledgeable about history, geology, and glaciology. Explaining all of the features and mechanics behind the glacier. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and would recommend taking the full day tour so you really have time to get out there and explore.
