Ski Mountaineering towards the Summit of Mt. Baker

Pro Guiding Service has been running rock climbing, alpine climbing, backountry skiing, and ski mountaineering courses and trips for the last 19 years. We not only have great guides, but also wonderful guests that have joined us on trips and courses from our backyard of Snoqualmie Pass, to the snowy backcountry of Japan. Take a few minutes to check out what some of them have to say about their experiences with us.

"You are asking me, seriously, for a testimonal? I've been on 20 international trips with you over the last 15 years. Wouldn't that suffice?"


- Catherine K. , Ireland

"I've attended two guided trips with PGS now and both were equally fantastic. The guides you have are very knowledgeable, and clearly know how to make a trip both interesting and fun. Can't wait for the next one!"

- Reid W. , AIARE 1



"Down to earth professionals with a passion for what they do, and a clear objective to keep this course educational, team oriented, positive, and most importantly safe."

- Charles R. , 3-Day Ski Touring Course

"I loved that the course was focused on learning outside while doing a tour.  I learned so much because we were outside actually doing the things that would make us more efficient in the mountains as opposed to just sitting inside talking about things.  I felt like my abilities skinning uphill grew a ton over the weekend thanks to Trevor, Zack, and Ben.  It was great."

- Anton R. , 3-Day Ski Touring Course


" Pro Guiding is such a great group of people - they respect and care deeply about the mountains and want to share it"

" Trevor and Zack were beyond awesome. Beyond their outstanding expertise and knowledge,  I was very impressed by their nuanced teaching styles. They managed the group dynamics skillfully in addition to making each member feel seen, heard, and supported. As guides, leaders and people, they were a treat to be around!" 

- Sophia G. , 3-Day Ski Touring Course

" We've used PGS guides for the past 7 years and wouldn't conduct our program without them"

- The Seattle Mountaineers

" Pro Guiding's instructors, raises the bar! They deliver in depth and focused education without intimidating egos and dictation. The instruction is focused and fun, empowering the participants to continue with the activity and education. Thank you! " 

- David E. , AIARE 2

" Outstanding guides all of them.  Knowledgeable, honest, personable, and knew when to let up on the teaching aspect and let us make certain decisions. "

- James N. , 3-Day Ski Touring Course

" Joe , Trevor and Dave are top notch guides and instructors.  They clearly have a passion for the outdoors and getting others out there as well. "

- Ryan R. , 3-Day Ski Touring Course

" Danny was an excellent guide and instructor on this course. He was organized, patient, and knowledgeable - and all of that came through in his demeanor and overall guidance throughout the weekend." 

- Gayln B. , 4-Day Mt. Baker Ski Mountaineering Course

" This was an amazing experience.  Everyday, I was afraid that I would wind up way beyond my comfort zone but everyday I ended on a perfect note.  I learned that you can have a great experience in "less than ideal" weather and snow conditions."

- Greg S. , 3-Day Backcountry Skiing Course



"Dave and Jere communicated a good deal of information very well and made the sequentially more complex rescue drills real. I already practice, but will practice more!
Trevor and Seth presented considerably more information, over three days, but still made it manageable. They were appropriately serious but still fun. They did an excellent job of not just teaching the material but also of teaching us how to keep learning. And motivating us."

 - Michael K. , AIARE Rescue Course & AIARE 2

"The guides' professionalism, ability to explain complex material, and engage the students were outstanding"


- Jeffrey H. AIARE 1

"Jere and Dave were fantastic! Very knowledgable, helpful, and good at explaining things. They also did a great job making the best of the less-than-ideal weather we encountered. Really want to say thank you so much to both of them for putting together such a great experience/course!"
