SWS is proud of our long history of helping everyone we can to achieve their goals. This includes helping adaptive climbers find their way to the top. Adaptive climbers might include blind, amputee, or climbers with T.B.I. or other special considerations. For almost a decade we have been helping climbers with these and other challenges reach their summit.
SWS has developed its own internal adaptive training system to prepare guides to work with a climber with special needs. Our training is based on work done thru the PSIA, AASI, and other professional programs that we have been able to apply to mountain guiding. We have spent the last decade refining our program for the best success possible.
If you or someone you know wants to climb and requires an adaptive guide please call our office and discuss with Tim, JB or Neil to find how we can help you.
We are happy to work with groups and private climbers, skiers, or hikers who wish to put together that special trip, course of instruction, or expedition you have been dreaming about. You only need a group of three or four to schedule a course with your own private guide priced at our regular prices. Private instruction and guiding with one or two requires a custom price quote. Contact Tim, David, or “JB” for a personalized quote for your group. Just give us a call at 888.797.6867 or request a quote below.
