Guide owned and operated.
Pacific Alpine Guides is a ski and mountain guide service based in the Pacific Northwest. We operate year-round, around the world, specializing in human-powered skiing as well as alpine climbing/mountaineering, and AIARE avalanche training.
Beyond our back yard, some of the places we go include Alaska's Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, British Columbia's Selkirk Mountains, the volcanoes region of Southern Chile, Japan's northern island of Hokkaido, Russia's Caucasus Mountains, and the Antarctic Peninsula.
Founded by Tyler Reid in 2011, we are a guide owned and operated company. We emphasize safety & professionalism, high quality mountain experiences (= fun), small groups, and low ratios.
We pride ourselves on developing lasting relationships with our guests. We have an ever growing pool of repeat customers who return year after year to share the next big adventure with us.
Our experienced guide team is comprised of passionate skiers and climbers who live and breathe the mountains. Our guides have worked with some of the top guide services in the US and many are AMGA certified, up to the IFMGA level.
Our industry partners include Genuine Guide Gear, Eddie Bauer, Petzl America, and Backcountry Access. Additional partners include Ultima Thule Outfitters, RMI Expeditions, and Ice Axe Expeditions.
