Is it safe?
While no outdoor adventure can be entirely free of risk without relinquishing the essence of the activity, chartering a professional guide is an excellent way to manage and mitigate this risk. Activities like climbing and skiing have what we call “inherent risk”, which can be described as a risk that cannot be entirely mitigated by a professional. That is part of recreating in the mountains, we urge you to reach out to the office if you would like to discuss this in more detail.
