Northwest Mountain School 

P.O. Box 329 • Leavenworth, WA 98826 


The Northwest Mountain School is an IFMGA owned guide service based in Leavenworth, WA. Our services include guided mountaineering, rock climbing, ski touring, ice climbing, and avalanche education. Our experience ranges from technical ascents in Washington and Alaska to 8000-meter peak ascents, and the rare sailboat based polar ski tour. We also train military special-forces groups, and regional climbing clubs. We hold AMGA Rock, Alpine, and Ski certifications and have been in continuous operation since 1994. We will never be the biggest guide service, but we intend to be one of the best.
