It is with great excitement and pride that IMG Denali, LLC announces having been awarded a 10 year contract by the National Park Service to guide on Denali. IMG Denali, LLC is a new company formed in 2014 by International Mountain Guides, LLC and our long-time friend, past climbing partner and guide, Dr. Daniel Mann. Dan lives in Fairbanks and is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geosciences at the University of Alaska and a Senior Research Scientist at the Institute of Arctic Biology at the University of Alaska. We have known Dan since the 1970’s and have guided with him on Rainier, Denali and Everest. In addition to his many climbs around the world, Dan’s expertise in environmental science will further strengthen IMG’s commitment to mountain conservation and education. International Mountain Guides, LLC partners Paul Baugher, George Dunn, Phil Ershler and Eric Simonson look forward to working with Dan Mann and bringing our combined skills and experience to the challenge of guiding on Denali and in Denali National Park beginning in May 2017.
