My family of five had a great introductory rock climbing experience with Michael. Michael emphasized safety and got my teenage girls climbing up some rock walls. We had a great time!


I've been very impressed with CAG. I've taken an avalanche education course and used them for guiding a ski tour. They run a very professional operation, seem very skilled, and generally are just nice people. I'd recommend them highly.


Booked a private backcountry tour with Nate from CAG and we had a spectacular time! Nate was knowledgeable, informative and entertaining, couldn't have asked for anything more from a guide! Would highly recommend CAG for any backcountry winter activity.
