5 STAR REVIEWS ON TRIP ADVISOR

We’ve done several trips with SMG over the past few years (all a mix of adults and teens), and every one has been excellent. These guys are great at what they do. They completely engaged us and our kids, and created a truly memorable experience for all of us. Highly recommended!

Top notch guides. I used them a few years ago to do a climbing trip up the Elephant’s Perch. Erik and crew are really solid folks, and were both fun and on top of it. Safety was priority #1, but that didn’t get in the way of pushing ourselves and having a great time. Can’t say enough about SMG.

We had a large group with beginners and some tentative skiers. Chris, and our other guide Drew, did an excellent job instructing us, and getting us to a terrain that all could enjoy. The experience was more than we would have asked for. Great guides, with exceptional service.
