Private Guiding…

At Vertical Frontiers we specialise in private guiding on tailor-made trips.
In fact, 80% of our guests are repeat clients working through a series of Alpine Climbs or Ski trips with our guides.

There are many benefits of hiring a private guide rather than joining a group.

The ability to pick the best mountain or route for your ambitions taking into account the weather and conditions at that time is a huge advantage compared with being tied into a set program.

The benefits of joining a group are both social and economic. It is cheaper, and climbing or skiing with a group can be great fun. You always need to be aware that we will go at the pace of the slowest member and for some ascents, if one person needs to turn around then the whole group must turn around also.

Many Alpine Climbs and some ski mountaineering routes that are long, technical (or both) often need to be guided on a 1:1 ratio.

Sometimes we team people up for the initial training days, before bringing in extra “summit guides” for the final ascent.

All of our “open trips” for both mountaineering and ski touring can be booked as a private trip. For a completely bespoke trip or to chat through some ideas don’t hesitate to contact us.

Exploring some different venues with Rob this morning. This little bowl gets no sun at the moment and so the snow is still pretty soft. 1200m before breakfast :)

I’m about ready to get the skinny race skis out and start pushing hard again...🎿🏃

Kirsty displaying the perfect summit pose today. Probably the most essential skill for a new mountaineer.
