INFINITY MOUNTAIN GUIDES

IFMGA

WHO IS A “MOUNTAIN GUIDE”?

A Mountain Guide is someone with the IFMGA carnet, the highest qualification in the world for leading people in the mountains, whether skiing, climbing or mountaineering. The IFMGA carnet is the only qualification valid abroad for climbing and skiing off-piste on glacial terrain.

Mountain Guides come in many shapes and sizes – the one thing they have in common is their passion for the mountains. Wherever they live and work, they will have a mass of experience, from rock climbing to Scottish winter, mountaineering and skiing all over the Alps, and experience of difficult climbs and remote mountains in other ranges around the world.

A Mountain Guide’s mountaineering background is consolidated with a rigorous training and assessment course lasting up to 5 years, with an apprenticeship period working alongside experienced Mountain Guides for 2 years before being finally certified to lead people in the mountains. Regular professional development training keeps Mountain Guides up to date with the latest techniques and standards.

If you want to employ a Mountain Guide, look for the IFMGA logo on websites and jackets.
