Women's Climbing and Mountaineering Training Programs with International Mountain Guides

IMG's Women's Programs were conceived, developed, and implemented by the female guides at IMG. We love working, playing, and just being outside, and we each have our own stories about the hurdles and struggles we have faced in our outdoor adventure journey. These stories inspired us to offer all-women's programs in an effort to help get more women outside. We want to help you achieve your goals in the mountains, develop confidence in yourself and competence in your skills, all the while having a blast on an unforgettable adventure with other like-minded women.

We hope you feel inspired to contact IMG with any questions and inquiries you may have, and/or to be put in touch with one of our female guides. We look forward to meeting you, and to the amazing adventures we will share.

We can answer questions, put you in touch with one of our female guides, and help you plan the perfect adventure.

  • Mt. Shuksan Women's Seminar »

    Seminar Description

    Join us August 4-9, 2018 for our all-women's 6-day course on Mount Shuksan. Here's what our guides say about the climb: "A beautiful hike through dense forest and up into the alpine zone will lead to our camp at the base of permanent snow. The rolling glacier terrain above camp is perfect for training in ice axe arrest, cramponing and crevasse rescue skills. As time allows, we'll do other training and skills sessions, which may include anchors, self and team crevasse rescue, ice climbing, route finding, glacier travel and fixed line ascension. Our route of ascent is via the Sulphide Glacier, the most direct route up the mountain with the fewest technical difficulties. The broad rolling expanse of the Sulphide Glacier provides a moderate roped glacier approach to the final 600-foot rock summit, which provides an opportunity to experience steeper roped snow climbing and moderate rock scrambling to the summit pinnacle, which is a very spectacular and scenic summit experience. Your all-female IMG guide team will take you through the training process and to the summit of Mt. Shuksan for a classic Northwest mountain experience."

I recently climbed Mount Rainier with three female IMG guides, and I was absolutely blown away. They're professional, supportive, strong, and fun. I hadn't thought it would make a difference for me to climb with other women (instead of with men), but it turned out to be a highlight of my adventure.
