To me, guiding is more than just marching you up and down a peak...  

Instead it's a partnership -- an educational and instructional experience in which you come away with a strong set of skills and techniques to become proficient and self-sufficient in the mountains. 

Emilie is certified by the American Mountain Guides Association as a Rock, Alpine and Ski Guide and licensed internationally by the IFMGA/ UIAGM as an American Mountain Guide.  She has been guiding since 2001 and works as an instructor and examiner for the AMGA Instructor Team.

The fine print

*Cancellation Policy:  You may cancel your trip for a full refund at any time up to 30 days prior to the trip start date, otherwise your payment will be forfeited accordingly: inside of 30 days you may cancel the trip at any time up until 10 days prior to the trip start date retaining a full credit for a future trip (up to one year from start date of original trip), less a 15% rebooking fee. Cancellation within 10 days of the trip start date will result in a credit toward a future trip (up to one year from start date of original trip) minus a 50% rebooking fee.  Please consider purchasing travel insurance if you think short notice cancellation is a possibility.  No credits or refunds for no shows, late arrivals, or leaving early.  Weather related delays or cancellations occur at the guides discretion, refunds or pro-rated fees will be discussed as needed.

In rare situations, I may need to cancel a scheduled day and I reserve the right to cancel any program for any reason, at any time. Typically, cancellations are the result of either extreme weather conditions, unavailability of instructors/guides (e.g. illness or injury), or the inability to gather enough participants to run a course.  In such cases, all participants who have signed up and paid deposits or full trip payments will first be offered a 100% credit towards a future trip/course (up to one year from start date of original trip). If that is not possible, participants will be refunded their entire payment amounts.  I cannot refund travel arrangements (e.g. lodging, rental cars, etc.) which is why travel insurance is strongly recommended.

*Rates may vary from what is listed here when operating as an employee under the permit of a local concessionaire, including (but not limited to) Exum Mountain Guides (Tetons, City of Rocks), San Juan Mountain Guides (Ouray) and Alpine Ascents International (North Cascades, Alaska).  Please visit their websites for additional pricing information.  Alternatively, permits and insurance for commercial mountain guiding activities are arranged through my membership in the Certified Guides Cooperative.
