December 30, 2020
On one hand it’s hard to believe 2020 is over, on the other hand it’s been one of the longest years on record! Like most businesses, here at IMG, we took our bumps & bruises in 2020. We missed more countries & rescheduled more climbs than we care to count, but we’re still here and looking forward to 2021… and beyond!
On the bright side of 2020, we were able to run over 30 Rainier climbs via the Disappointment Cleaver Route and a lot of climbs of Mt. Baker & Mt. Shuksan. It was a huge effort by the guides to maintain our Covid-19 protocols, but in their truest of forms, they knocked it out of the park. We’re taking all that we learned in 2020 and will use it as the foundation for our climbs in 2021. As such, we’ve got a full slate of programs scheduled for this winter in New England, Ouray, and on Mt. Rainier as well as spring climbs of Mt. Whitney, a full schedule of climbs and treks on Everest, a full summer of sold out climbs of Mt. Rainier, and an ever filling schedule of Mt. Baker, Mt. Shuksan and other climbs here in the PNW.
We fully recognize that things are still pretty fragile, and more fluid that we’d all like, but have a lot to be thankful for, and even more to look forward to.
See you in the mountains!
