Sawtooth Mountain Guides is cooking up some exciting new programs for this summer! Whether you hope to get deeper into the mountains or climb to their summits, we have a trip to help you get out and achieve your goals. Here’s what we have on tap:
- PEAK A WEEK – Discounted non-technical peak climbs each Saturday throughout the summer! Join a group of like-minded and adventurous hikers to tackle one of our area’s countless summits. Peak climbs may involve scrambling but are generally non-technical. All you need is a decent set of legs and lungs, and a desire to reach the top of the world!
- BACKPACKING 101 – August 15-17 – This course is designed to help the beginning backpacker break into the world of backcountry travel by providing the mentorship of an experienced guide and all the gear, food and instruction you need to become a confident backcountry enthusiast.
- 4-DAY TRAVELING LIGHT HIKING TRIP – August 14-17 – Want to go backpacking without the heavy backpack? Then our 4-Day Traveling Light Sawtooth Hiking Trip is your dream come true. Imagine carrying only a light daypack while hiking through some of the best scenery the Sawtooths have to offer! Our incredible 4-day itinerary will take you through the heart of the Sawtooth range connecting valleys, high passes, and alpine basins with new vistas around every corner.
- PORTERED BASE CAMP TRIP – Want to explore the Sawtooths beyond the typical day hike destinations but don’t feel like shouldering a heavy pack? We don’t blame you! You carry in a small daypack and leave the rest to us. We will porter in all the equipment and food you need for a comfortable base camp. Whether fishing, hiking, or off-trail exploration is your goal, our guides will show you some amazing places beyond the reach of the average dayhiker. This is also a great option for kids ready to experience the outdoors but groan at the idea of carrying a big backpack.
