About Us

We are a small guide service based on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula offering guided and instructional programs in the Olympic Mountains (our home range), Mt. Baker, North Cascades, Canada, and Alaska.

Mountain adventure is our specialty – ski touring & ski mountaineering, alpine climbing, mountaineering, avalanche education and more. We keep ratios low and group sizes small, offering both scheduled and custom programs throughout the seasons.

Run by Tyler and Katy Reid, Pacific Alpine Guides is a collective of highly experienced mountain guides who have worked with some of the top guide services in the US, and hold certifications from such organizations as the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA), American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE), American Avalanche Association (AAA), and Wilderness Medical Institute (WMI).
