“The harder something is, the more we get out of doing it”

 

Mountain Man

We believe being in the mountains is the best thing in the world and whether we're trekking, climbing or skiing; we just love being in the mountains! We also believe that the mountains are for everyone to enjoy and our sole mission is getting everyday people up into the mountains for the challenge of a lifetime. Our goal is to offer a range of trips from those that have never been in the mountains to those that already love them. Every one of our expeditions is designed to help you achieve your goals by being your support network. We'll provide training plans, qualified mountain guides and, of course, huge encouragement and enthusiasm from the founder himself, Doug Spence AKA The Beard!
