Intro to Guiding Program

In Apex’s Intro to Guiding Program, participants have the opportunity to be in the field up to 3-5 days per week under the guidance of Vail, Colorado’s, number one recommended source for mountaineering.

The program was developed for people who are interested in breaking into the commercial mountain guiding industry. Our intention is to expose you to guiding experience in the field that you might not otherwise have access to, as well as guidance and mentorship with your own development process. Participants are responsible for putting in the effort to further themselves, and need to come into the program with adequate skills in order to not inhibit guides’ process.

The Intro to Guiding Program is a paid program lasting 13 weeks in either the summer or winter season. Currently we only accept 1 participant per season.
