Since its inception, the Tech Crampon 250 continues to be inspired, designed, and tested by owner and founder Martin Volken, and our staff of professionally trained mountain guides at Pro Guiding Service. Experience ultimate freedom in the mountains with the lightest crampon in the world! The Tech Crampon 250 is a steel front pointing boot crampon that uses the toe tech fittings of your ski boots as attachment points. When the terrain is too steep and boney to skin up switch to your Tech Crampon 250 and ascend the slope safely and confidently in any condition. A huge leap in crampon technology at 1/4 the weight of traditional steel boot crampons, you will never again make the mistake of choosing to leave your crampons in the car. This bomber tool has also been tested by a host of notable ski mountaineers from the Swiss Alps to the North Cascades. This is the tool for ski mountaineers traveling through steep mountain terrain.

Pro Ski and Mountain Service is our retail specialty store. It has been located in North Bend, WA since 1999. The past trips and courses have had a large influence on what we sell. Many of our Pro Guiding customers come on trips and courses with gear they purchased from our store. Not only do we want our clients to have the right gear for the job; we also receive direct feedback from them while they are using it in the field. Trust us - if the gear does not work - we won't sell it.
Valdez is well known for its heli skiing, and the Thompson Pass area is one of our favorite ski mountaineering areas in the U.S. The mountains are wild and spectacular, but surprisingly easy to summit on skis. The snow pack is very maritime and therefore perfect for steeper lines. The fact that we get to stay in the port town of Valdez and enjoy great salmon dinners night after night makes this a uniquely Northwest American experience.
This Avalanche course near the Crystal Mountain Ski area is geared around the backcountry user who does not have any avalanche safety training yet. It is a judgment-building course packed with information. In the AIARE Level 1, you will be introduced to topics such as mountain weather, different snow packs, tour planning, hazard recognition and evaluation, snow pack analysis, transceiver search and much more.
The best way to become a backcountry skier is to take a backcountry skiing course. The ski touring course we offer just one hour away from Seattle in the Alpental backcountry is a stand alone course. We would like to enourage you to combine the ski touring course with one of our AIARE Level 1 courses.
