Our rates our based on the ratio of guests per guide, duration of the trip, and the amount of technical equipment needed. Challenging climbs and ski descents require a lower ratio (often 2-3:1), while other activities such as hiking can be run safely at higher ratios. Also, we believe in paying our guides a living wage. The majority of our guides have pursued extensive and costly training and have chosen to make a career out of guiding in the mountains.

Fees include Redfish Lake Boat Shuttle and all technical climbing and/or camping equipment except ski rental. Multi-day fees include all snacks and meals starting with lunch on the first day.
