We’ve got some exciting news to share about the Telluride Via Ferrata (TVF)!

Starting in June, for every climber we guide on this iconic route, Mountain Trip will donate $10 to the fund. The Telluride Via Ferrata Sustainability Fund was established in 2019 to help provide resources to sustain and maintain the route, and since then Mountain Trip has donated more than $18,000 directly to the fund. Why? Because we’re not just about scaling m ..read more

2023 Denali Season Wrap Up: The Season of Storms
Mountain Trip Blog

Rising over 18,000 feet above the nearby tundra, Denali is infamous for its challenging weather. At 20,310 feet tall, and sitting at 63 degrees north latitude, Denali is the highest peak in the Arctic. “The Great One” can be a magnet for storms that blow in from the Gulf of Alaska or across the Bering Sea, and at times it seems to create its own weather with the summit enshrouded in lenticular clouds, a sign of the high winds hammering the mountain. Bad weather comes and goes with beautiful sunny, calm days typically mixed in with the windy and snowy stormy days. Over the course of a 22-day ..read more

Mountain Trip Celebrates 50 Years!

Back in the early 1970s, Mountain Trip was born of a dirtbag climber’s daydream. Gary Bocarde, our founder, is a hero, a mentor and a friend. Gary grew his legend as a climber by tackling iconic first ascents like The Shield on El Capitan in 1972, first ascents of every peak on the east side of the Ruth Gorge in Alaska (many of which were guided FAs), the first winter ascent of Mount Hunter via the Northwest Spur in 1980, as well as establishing the first big wall in Alaska, climbing the Southwest Face to the southwest summit of the Mooses Tooth in 1974.  Gary also took his pursuits abro ..read more

GearJunkie features Mountain Trip in its Skier and Snowboarder’s Guide to Telluride

“That exceedingly rare ski town magic still exists in Telluride, Colorado. Trust us, you’ll feel it as soon as you turn onto Highway 145 and follow the snaking San Miguel River up the red-rock canyon beneath the spired San Juans. When you’re exploring a notorious zone like Bear Creek — or the San Juans in general — it’s a solid idea to tap local guides. Not only do local guides know the terrain intimately so you won’t get cliffed out, but they also dig pits and have boots on the ground all winter long, giving them an unparalleled grasp on the snowpack.” — Read the full article on GearJunkie.co ..read more

Latino Local Climbing Outreach
Mountain Trip Blog

This summer we’ve had the opportunity to get to know some more members of our local community during both Telluride Via Ferrata and Rock Climbing trips geared toward our Latino peers. Through a partnership with the Sheep Mountain Alliance, Wilkinson Public Library and Tri-County Health Network, we learned that a whopping 30% of San Miguel County identifies as Latino/Hispanic and are native Spanish or Chuj speakers. Even though this is such a large part of our regional population, they are the most dramatically underrepresented group in our outdoors community. And yet, these same individuals re ..read more
