Credentials

The single most important question to ask when searching for a guide service is: "Who is actually doing the guiding?" If you are not 100% satisfied with the answer, look for another organization. IMG's leaders are among the most experienced guides in the world, and their track record is impeccable. Eric Simonson, Phil Ershler and George Dunn each have over 25 years of guiding on Mt. Rainier and dozens of expeditions on Denali, the proving grounds of American alpine guiding. Internationally, they've each summited Everest, and their resumes include the world's great climbs: K2, Kangchenjunga, Shishapangma, Cho Oyu, Vinson, Aconcagua, and many more. Simonson, Ershler, and Dunn are American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) certified alpine guides.

Feel the "difference" with IMG

In addition to our unmatched credentials, we operate our business differently. Each trip is organized personally by one of the three founders and owners of IMG: Phil Ershler, Eric Simonson, and George Dunn. This means that from beginning to end:

You deal directly with the person responsible for the quality of your trip
You deal directly with a highly experienced guide and mountaineer
You deal directly with an International Mountain Guides owner who is 100% committed to the long-term quality of IMG's programs.

My Personal Experience

This was the first time I climbed with a guide service in the United States. I researched IMG on the internet, and found their prices and dates suitable for me, so ended up choosing them.
My experience with them on Mt. Rainier was fabulous. All the guides were very professional, and were very experienced climbers.
I definitely plan to climb with them in future.

JonWtop notch instruction

Voted 5/5

I took a crevasse rescue class with these guys. The first day was spent at their facility in Ashford and the second day on Rainier. The instruction was top notch. Two guides for a class of 8. The course content was adjusted based on the students' interests and skill levels.
