If you can afford it, I'd really encourage you to hire a guide. The learning curve is so much steeper that way - you'll progress much faster. Seriously - you can learn to ski with your friends, in a group lesson, or a private too, you typically learn the least (and the slowest) with your friends - unless they happen to be ski instructors. Likewise with climbing, and with similar results (and much higher consequences). I think one-to-one instruction gets you the best return-on-investment.

And I'd encourage you to hire an AMGA Certified Rock Guide or an IFMGA/AMGA Mountain Guide. There are awesome guides out there who aren't certified (its not a requirement in most places in the US), and it doesn't promise that they'll have great personalities, but it does carry the assurance that they meet a professional standard recognized world-wide.

Feel free to message me if you would like a referral wherever you live. Or you can go to the AMGA website,, and click on the tab "Find a Guide".
