IMG conducted its annual spring guide training over the May 2 and 3 weekend.
26 guides showed up for the weekend and it was a great event in part due to the excellent weather. This made for a pleasant barbecue on Saturday night and skills training up at Paradise on Sunday.
Our guides are offered three major training sessions each year, in early May on Rainier, in October for rock rescue training in Leavenworth, WA, and in January for ice training in Ouray CO.
In addition to this, we offer ongoing instruction through the summer months at our headquarters in Ashford WA, combined training with the other guide services and the National Park Service on Mt. Rainier and other impromptu training events. Training never ends for an IMG guide.
