I took recreational avy 1 with Mountain Trip and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The guides (Fischer and Coop) were incredibly knowledgeable instructors and skilled teachers. They used hands on methods to teach us the process of analyzing avalanche risk both before and during a tour, enlisting the group in the decision making process and ensuring that everyone was engaged in the process. I feel fortunate to have been paired with them and highly recommend this course to anyone.

Fischer and Dave were the best, most knowledgeable mountain activity guides I have ever met. They gave our entire group of 8 a fun and information packed half day. These guys could be doing just about anything with a wide array of knowledge and genuine personalities. Thankfully they have chosen to guide in the great outdoors. And Mountain Trip was great to work with. Easy to follow website, email communications and every detail covered. We had complete novices and experienced rock climbers in our group and we ALL felt very safe and still all had a great adventure doing something we had never done. Highly Highly recommend going ice climbing if you have not and if you can get Fischer and Dave to take you, even better.

I'm so glad you enjoyed climbing with us and thank you for the kind words! We agree, we think Fischer, Dave and all of our guides are pretty special. Next time you are in Telluride or when you are ready to plan for a **higher** objective, let us know. Happy New Year!

My son and I decided to try something different and spent a half day learning / ice climbing with Carly of Mountain Trip. Carly did a great job making sure it was safety first. We learned a lot. She did a wonderful job. The only thing she didn't do was convert us to ice climbers. Still prefer skiing and hiking. Glad we tried it.

After climbing Ballard this summer with Slator, my boyfriend and I were excited to join him for our first ice climbing “expedition”. As before, Slator was friendly, supportive & extremely well-prepared with gear & answers to all of our questions. This adventure also included my 4 year old daughter, and Slator was extremely patient and kind with her, even taking time to “tie her in” so she could have her own mini climb. All in all, everybody had a great time & look forward to our next Mountain Trip adventure!

Jesse was an awesome guide for this trip. Since I was traveling alone, he was my one-on-one guide along the Via Ferrata. I’ve got some rock climbing experience, so I was reasonably comfortable with the equipment. I highly recommend approach shoes for this experience, I was only in tennis shoes and I was not as comfortable with the footholds as I prefer. Jesse was very patient and offered great coaching when I struggled through some of the tougher transitions. He also snagged some great pictures of me while I was traversing and was able to AirDrop them to me at the end. All in all, this was an amazing experience that I would highly recommend. The only way to do a non-winter Telluride trip! Thank you Jesse!
