Mountain Trip began as a big mountain dream in 1973 up in Alaska. They grew from a small operation guiding trips to the summit of Denali, the highest peak in North America, to guiding the 'Seven Summits,' or the highest peaks around the world--including Mount Everest. In Telluride, they guide the Via Ferrata, trekking, peak ascents, backcountry skiing, and rock and ice climbing; they are the only Telluride-based guide service permitted to guide in the Ouray Ice Park. Mountain Trip also offers custom international trekking and mountaineering trips from South America to Antarctica.
