Come learn the art of rappelling and experience a unique thrill with the guides at Apex Mountain School. Rappelling, also known as abseiling, is an exciting form of mountain travel used to descend sheer cliff faces with ease. Our guides will teach you all the skills needed to learn this art for yourself. You’ll get to rappel multiple times and we’ll give you personalized instruction on how to control your rappel, always with a full back up from an Apex guide. Apex welcomes all ages, ability and fitness levels. No experience is necessary. All technical gear (ropes, harnesses, helmets, and rappel devices) is provided. Trust your Colorado rappelling experience to the abseil experts of Vail, Colorado. Our guides have introduced more visitors to rappelling than any other company in the Vail Valley, and our level of training and expertise is unmatched!
