Reviews or experience with Northwest Mountain School (NMS)?

by Tools_Incoming » Wed Sep 07, 2011 1:37 am

Hi Everyone,
I'm getting ready to sign-up for a climb on either Baker or Adams next year, and I am still comparing guide services/schools. One that recently caught my eye was Northwest Mountain School ( Does anyone have any experience with these folks? Thoughts on their skills, abilities, etc? I am of course also looking at AAI, IMG, and MM...but these folks (NMS) stood out due to their smaller size and seeming more customizable program.

The owners are both well respected here in the PNW and have earned IFMGA certification, the industry gold standard. I would highly recommend Mt Baker over Adams - better training opportunities, more scenic.
