Dear Valued Clients and Friends,
The team at Apex Mountain School would like to thank you for your years of support, trust, and patronage. As a family run company, Apex’s guides have always strived to put client safety first, while also working to provide you with fulfilling outdoor educational experiences and private guided adventures. As we continue to respond to the needs surrounding coronavirus, COVID-19, this close attention to client safety and quality of experience remain at the heart of our mission. We continue to offer all courses and private outings in compliance with the most current Eagle County Public Health Order. Under advisement of Apex Mountain School’s medical director, our current guidelines include, but are not limited to:
- Require masks indoors when appropriate
- Recommend social distancing when appropriate
- Continued sanitization of business spaces
- Continuing to screen clients and employees for exposure and symptoms
For those not yet able to participate in group recreational activities, more comfortable joining us from the comfort of their living room, or maybe just in need of a little more technical education before venturing out on their own, Apex Mountain School is excited to offer:
- Remote trip planning for you and your adventure companions! Trip plans include extensive technical information, map, route, timing, and gear plans specific to your destination and activity, in addition to the insight only years of guiding experience can provide.
- How-to videos available online through our social media platforms on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube – follow us to stay tuned for these exciting updates!
- Gift cards are available to purchase now for a trip later and always make great birthday, graduation, or just getting back outside gifts.
As a member of the community for over 20 years, Apex is proud to offer all Emergency Responders a ‘thank you’ of 15% off all regularly priced private outings. Please see Special Pricing tab below for details.
From the Apex family to yours, we look forward to the 2021/22 winter season with enthusiasm and excitement for sharing the great outdoors with you. Feel free to browse our site and let us know what your next adventure will be.
