This experience was different than what other companies can provide...
My experience with Alpenglow expeditions in Ecuador was wonderful. Experiencing Ecuador and the mountains with two Ecuadorean guides made this experience different than what other companies can provide, and that was what I was looking for. Not only did the guides know and love the mountains, but they knew the land, the people, the culture in ways you don't get from other tours.
Alpenglow made our experience exceptional!
Jaime was our guide and we felt lucky to have him. He is experienced, safe, friendly, fun, empathetic, pushy at just the right times, creative, flexible in dealing with issues, accommodating, extremely knowledgeable and ought to get the award for services above and beyond the call of duty. He lent my son boots, and went back to Quito to get them and a mega bottle of Advil for our headaches. He is a credit to Alpenglow and made our experience exceptional! We felt like we were hiking and climbing with an old family friend.
I would definitely recommend Alpenglow Expeditions for future trips!
Had a great trip to Argentina on the 2016 Aconcagua rapid ascent expedition. The guides Logan, Zeb and Jaime were fantastic, and took care of everything. The pre-acclimatization tents worked great. We went from sea level to nearly 14,000' and started hiking the next day with no problems at all. Unfortunately neither our team nor any other team were able to summit because of the strong winds, but that's a risk you take climbing big mountains. The guides always kept us safe with consistent weather updates, good equipment and provided plenty of porter support to make the trip easier and more enjoyable. I look forward to going back to Aconcagua next year if El Nino has subsided and the weather is better. Hoping to go to Ecuador climbing school with Alpenglow as well! I would definitely recommend Alpenglow Expeditions for future trips!
A very professional, comprehensive, educational, and enjoyable experience.
I took Alpenglow Expedition's AIARE Level 1 Avalanche Safety course in December 2015 from Logan Talbott. It was a very professional, comprehensive, educational, and enjoyable experience. Logan is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the course. What sets him apart as an instructor is the clarity of his instruction and the manner in which he delivers it. Avy 1 is an extremely broad course, but Logan made sure to break each module down into digestible parts, and teach them in both theoretical and real-world applications. While some of the subject matter is dry, Logan made sure to keep things enjoyable through group participation, exercises (both planned and surprise), and hands-on experience (such as everyone getting to dig their own pit for snow analysis). The three days flew by and never felt like I was sitting in a lecture hall. I would and will actively seek further instruction and guiding from Logan and from the crew at Alpenglow Expeditions.
