IMG Provides the Best Possible Experience on Mt. Rainier

All IMG programs on Mt. Rainier are guided at a ratio of two climbers per guide. This offers more personal focus, a better measured pace, and better chance of success.

Training starts the very first day and continues throughout each program. We choose to teach many skills up on the mountain rather than at the base prior to the climb. We feel this provides more realistic training conditions so you start out better prepared on summit day.

At IMG we feel it is worth the extra expense to provide two nights on the mountain for our shortest summit climb option. Better acclimatization, realistic training environment, and an easier summit day really pays off!

We provide breakfasts and dinners on all of our programs at no extra cost. The guides work together to help prepare you tasty, nutritious meals during the climb, and we eat together as a team in a social and positive learning environment.

Throughout the climb, every accommodation is made to include you in the IMG family and make you feel welcome.

Mt. Rainier is the best training grounds in the lower 48 states for glacier climbing and expedition skills. IMG is a world class guide service. Our guide staff has the expertise to take you up Mt. Rainier and then on to the world's great mountains.

This service is operated by International Mountain Guides, LLC, a Concessioner under contract with the U.S. Government and administered by the National Park Service. The Concessioner is responsible for conducting these operations in a satisfactory manner. Prices are approved by the National Park Service.
