Alpine Ambassadors

Alpine Ambassadors

Alpine Ambassadors are a group of climbers looking to push their limits together, learn from the mentorship of guides and highly accomplished climbers, and mentor others. The group is comprised of leaders from all branches with climbing programs! 

The Alpine Ambassadors program is one piece of the Progressive Climbing Education (PCE) initiative, an organization-wide, multi-faceted approach to develop leaders, enhance skills for our volunteers, grow curriculum, conserve climbing areas, and foster the highest quality climbing programs.

In 2018, we introduced the Alpine Skills Development Program aimed at skilled climbers who've given a substantial amount of their time to help new climbers through The Mountaineers, and who want to take their own climbing skills to the next level.  

In February 2018, we kicked off the newly named "Alpine Ambassadors" program when seventeen climbers went to Canmore, BC, to work on ice climbing skills. Comfort, skill, and efficiency leading on multi-pitch rock directly translates into experience and proficiency leading in alpine terrain. In short: it grows our coalition of volunteers' skills, making us better leaders and increasing the types of trips we can offer to our students.
