About Us

We Aim to Inspire

Environmentally Conscious

We love nature. It’s our playground and our church. The places we visit are special and beautiful. We always strive to leave no trace other than our ski tracks or footprints. Our guides will ensure you have maximum fun while having minimum impact on the mountain environment.

Prepared

While our clients’ safety is always top priority, danger and risk can never be completely eliminated from the mountain environment. Our guides will always use their experience, judgment and training to mitigate that risk and reduce exposure to unnecessary hazards. In the event of an emergency, however, we are prepared to deal with emergencies including crevasse and high-angle rescue, wilderness first aid, and emergency evacuation procedures.

Navigational Experts

As an adventure guiding service, our primary task is to lead you safely to places you have never been before. Our guides are expertly trained in map and compass navigation, GPS usage, alpine route finding, and travel through avalanche terrain.

Always Good-to-Go

Our guides live full time in Georgia and are ready to adventure with you year round. Whether it’s winter, spring, summer, or fall there are always amazing places to explore. We are prepared for all seasons and conditions and can help you get equipped and ready for what you might expect to encounter on your expedition.

Backcountry Experts

Our guides have extensive experience living and working in remote backcountry environments for extended periods. Whether you’re looking to try your first overnight backpacking trek in the wilderness or you are ready to try your hand at a multiday ski mountaineering expedition in the High Caucasus, we’ve got you covered.
