The Prospectus for two new guiding concessions on Mt. Rainier was issued by the National Park Service on February 3, 2006 and IMG submitted our response to that Prospectus on May 1, 2006.
Months of hard work by IMG owners, partners and guide staff went into preparing our considered response. After additional months of meticulous review, on October 9, 2006, the National Park Service announced that IMG's offer has been evaluated as one of the best by the NPS and that IMG has been awarded one of the new Park Service concession contracts for the operation of guided mountaineering and other snow and glacier based activities within Mount Rainier National Park.
Selection of the new concession holders will usher in a new era of guiding choices on Mt. Rainier. Smaller groups, tighter guide to customer ratios, more program choices and an experienced, committed guide staff will be the hallmark of our new IMG concession.
Plan now to join the guides of International Mountain Guides on Mt. Rainier during the 2007 season. Select your climb from a wide variety of options, summit safely, learn and truly enjoy your experience on one of America's greatest mountains in one of America's greatest National Parks.
Program dates will soon be available as final planning with the Park Service is completed. We expect our programs to fill quickly. Please contact IMG now for the Rainier experience of a life time. We look forward to climbing with you on "THE MOUNTAIN"!
