From the ice fields of Antarctica to the summit of Everest, our team of world-renowned guides has earned respect for both their own hard-earned achievements and for leading their clients safely and successfully up the world's highest peaks.
Whether keeping clients safe in avalanche terrain or pioneering new descents in the Alaska Ranges, our First Ascent ski guides live for steep, stacked lines in untracked zones. Heli access or self-ascent, this elite team exemplifies gravity-fueled commitment.
Each inspirational athlete selected for the First Ascent team embodies the true spirit of mountain and wilderness adventure. From heli lines in Alaska and raging rivers in Africa to splitboard missions to summit every major Cascadian peak, our new breed of pioneering outdoor explorers should serve as motivation to us all.
