Ever wonder what it's like to ski a few thousand feet of untouched pow? We did. And we tried it and loved it! After skiing all this fresh powder ourselves, we thought about big mountain skiing so much that we decided that we needed to share these ski experiences with everyone. Skiing is many of our team members' first love, with our climbing obsession going hand in hand, of course.
Ever want to know what it's like to climb to the summit of the Grand Teton? This past weekend, Alpenglow took a crew up to the summit of the Grand and guide Brian Warren wrote a great post describing their experience.
One of the best parts about Alpenglow’s Ecuador Climbing trip is our visit to Otavalo, a small town about 36 miles northeast of Quito. After our summit of Cotopaxi, we like to rest and enjoy the colorful culture of Ecuador and have found that there is no better place to do that than in Otavalo. Mountain peaks, including Imbabura, Cotocachi, and the Mojanda Volcanoes, surround this town of about 90,000 residents. Otavalo is probably best known as the home of South America’s largest street market, where you can buy anything from handmade silver jewelry to beautiful woven blankets.
We have summited the Grand! Today, climber Hitesh and guide Brian Warren reached the summit of the Grand Teton at 13,775 feet via the classic Exum Ridge.
Since 2012, Alpenglow has been dedicated to Rapid Ascent expeditions, shortening the time it takes to climb big mountains by 30-50%. This is now the only style we climb 8000-meter peaks in, and it is quickly becoming the most popular and successful way for our teams to climb big peaks around the world.
