Private climbs, courses and treks
If you see a trip you like, but the dates aren’t quite right, or you want to have the intimacy of just you and your significant other or just your family or friends; we can make it happen! At Mountain Madness all of our private trips will follow the same itinerary as our pre-scheduled climbs and treks – but, we can also change-up itineraries, or add in extra features and services, all to make your journey unique. And if there is a destination that you do not see offered, let us know, we’ve been at this for decades and can pull together our resources and get you the itinerary you are looking for. And of course if you have a favorite guide, let us know and we’ll get them onboard with you.
How much does a private climb or trek cost?
As long as your group size reaches a minimum number, then the price per person will be the same as our pre-scheduled dates. This will vary from one trip to the next, so call our office for details.To accommodate various budgets we can also change things up a bit to lower the cost without compromising the level of service, or if you want this to be the trip of a lifetime, we can upgrade to your heart’s content!
What dates are available for my private trip?
All our trips are scheduled with optimal times in mind for weather, climbing conditions, cultural events, and so forth. For this reason, we ask that you start your planning as soon as you have an idea of what you are looking for, and we’ll be ready to help you. This does not require a financial commitment on your part, but will help us gauge our needs for staff, hotel reservations, and other services that require advance notice until you are ready to sign-up for the trip.
Will I get the same services as a scheduled climb?
Yes! There will be no difference in services provided on a private trip. You will still have the same qualified guides, up to date equipment, and optimal acclimatization program offered on our regularly scheduled trips. And as mentioned, you can scale-back on service to save money or notch-it-up for the ultimate experience.
Are there age restrictions?
If you have a custom trip you can bring the whole family along. Depending on the age of participants, there may be some additional services we’d recommend. For example, on a Mount Baker climb with pre-teens, we may suggest a porter be utilized and possibly an additional guide., but all these details are easily arranged and will depend on the objective.
