The Women’s Network was created by the prolific Aimee Barnes, long term guide and leader at The Mountain Guides who was seeking greater gender inclusivity in rock climbing and backcountry skiing.
The Women’s Network aims to fuel the spirit by providing adventure-minded women (transgender and cisgender) and non-binary people the opportunity to explore or expand their mountain skills, develop confidence, push personal limits and build connections in a professional and intentional environment. Currently, we are offering rock climbing, alpine climbing and backcountry skiing clinics by AMGA certified women identifying guides. More information is available on these programs, so do not hesitate to reach out.
At The Mountain Guides, we are examining structural shifts that need to occur to increase access to and inclusivity of our offerings. The Women’s Network is one step on this journey. This programming will be transforming and expanding as we continue to learn and grow as an organization.
