You operate in a complex, ever changing environment where success and safety require solid skills, rapid analysis and constant adaptability. We help individuals and teams develop their operational capacity in any venue. With customized curricula, we work with you to identify what your team needs and wants, rather than having a one size fits all solution or cookie cutter classes. Adapt smarter and execute with confidence. 

Professional Rescuers

A Comprehensive Approach

Conditions, terrain and hazards all effect the success and ease of a rescue. By developing your skills beyond the basics, you can develop a more effective and efficient rescue operation. 

Mountain Athletes

Expert Guidance

We work with you to develop the skills to help you help yourself when you're away from the crowd; because any time you recreate in remote locations, self-rescue is the best rescue. 

Mountain Professionals

The Path to Success

When things go sideways, being well practiced in rescue skills will help you confidently and smoothly guide clients, bystanders and team members to effect an efficient rescue, no matter the terrain.


“Mike’s professional experience, recreational experience and personality work together to make him one if the best instructors of any course i have attended. Our course was by far the most challenging and yet most rewarding and fun that I have attended.”
