AWA operates under special commercial use permits as a permit holder or in conjunction with other permit holders as required by US and Canada law.
Though we may be marketing areas we currently do not possess commercial guiding permits, a complete list of all permits cannot be displayed as we organize many permits on a per-occurrence basis only. Please contact us for further information.

Learn it the right way - Learn it from the Pros! As professional guides and lifelong mountain travelers, we possess the knowledge and experience to teach you the proper skills you need to get out on your own and to bring you to the next level. We put a lot of thought into developing a supreme curriculum for each discipline (rock, ice, alpine, ski and avalanche safety) offering a most efficient learning environment. All our courses are hands-on and fun, challenging but never overwhelming and taught outdoors in small class sizes to maximize your experience. Our backyard, the Front Range above Boulder and Denver, offers easy access to perfect terrain for all our courses.

Providing top-quality mountain skills instruction since 1999, we are proud to offer our expertise to a broad clientele ranging from weekend warriors, beginners to experienced mountain hard men, Schools and Youth organizations, Corporations, aspiring Guides, Search-and-Rescue personnel to US Coast Guard and Armed Forces.

While we do offer some pre-scheduled courses, all our services are available as custom designed private arrangements, tailored to meet your specific objectives and time frame.
