ClimbingLife Guides offers the highest quality experiential education in the backcountry skiing and climbing arts and sciences. We are full-time educators and for more than 25 years our staff have been sharing our passion and the sciences of mountain travel around the world.

A passion for sharing ideas and state of the art techniques in climbing risk management and techniques continues to be the motivation for our guiding services.  Meeting our client's goals, abilities, and desires is our day to day focus whether a half day of climbing or a three week expedition.

Whether we are sharing ideas on packing with a beginner or refining the risk management techniques of an experienced alpinist, our focus on a positive learning environment and a professional methodology are key to your success.

Please join us this season in expanding your abilities and knowledge in the rock and mountain environments, here in Colorado and around the world.

  • Rock Climbing

    The Front Range of Colorado is one of the world's top climbing destinations and ClimbingLife Guides has been active in this area for the last 15 years while training climbers of all ages and abilities. 

    Join us for a private training day, a group clinic, or a week-long seminar in the climbing arts.  We are the local experts and can assist you in developing your techniques and risk management abilities in some of the top climbing venues available on both granite and sandstone escarpments.

    Our AMGA trained and certified Rock Guides are among the best in the country and we are active in guide education, route development, and anchor replacement as advocates of safer climbing and professional training services.



  • Backcountry Skiing

    Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) is one of the premier backcountry skiing and snowboarding destinations in North America due to the steep, cliff covered terrain that holds some of the deeper snow in the Front Range of Colorado along with dramatic descents off the Continental Divide.

    We were the first AMGA Certified Ski Guides to operate in RMNP and our knowledge of the backcountry here is unsurpassed.  Each winter we offer skiing seminars and backcountry outings in RMNP and our goal it to provide the best training in backcountry skiing techniques and risk management skills to prepare individuals in maximizing the fun and rewards in snow covered terrain.

    Enjoy a private outing, group training, or one of our amazing ski adventures to Alaska and around the world this year.

    Please check-out our ski and snowboard offerings and join us this winter for a snow filled adventure.
