• My family spent the day climbing with team at Aspen Expeditions. It was an amazing day - fun, challenging, educational and our guides were great. Highly recommend spending the day, or more, with Amos and his crew.

  • Wow! What a fantastic experience. Britt took me up the Grotto Wall Traverse last summer and I'm still thinking about it these few months later. The combination of his cool confidence, the solid rock, varied climbing, and the situation of the route made this senior citizen one happy dude.


  • I have been a customer of Aspen Expeditions for a solid 15+ years, with many, many dozens of trips, Winter and Summer.

    Whether it's for skiing the back country, climbing or grabbing peaks, AE is absolutely my goto outfit. With or without my kids in tow.

    The guides are all knowledgeable, capable and well trained. And fun!

    Solid recommendation. A+

  • Extraordinary experiences! Just returned from our second hut trip guided by Britt Ruegger and Sammy Podhurst of Aspen Expeditions and we already are planning our next trip with them. Aspen Expeditions’ guides expertise in the backcountry, planning of all trip details, and enthusiasm and personalities make these hut trips so enjoyable and inspire us to trek deeper into the backcountry and experience challenging, gorgeous terrain. We would recommend Aspen Expeditions to both experienced backcountry explorers and people who want to see all that the area has to offer in terms of skiing, outdoor physical activities, and spectacular settings.

  • I have been on numerous different types of trips with the guys (and gals) at Aspen Expeditions. The team is world class in terms of guiding but also friendly and approachable. Whether it is something local in and around Aspen, or a bigger trip internationally these guys deserve to be a one stop call for any trip you are looking at. Each guide I have been out with has been a blast and I enjoy spending my free days in the mountains with all of them. I give them all top marks and think they have earned their spot as one of the premier guiding services.

    As an update, I recently returned from a week long trip to Iceland with Amos and Sammy. I can say hands down it was one of the best trips of my life. Can't say enough good things about this shop or these guides. I will use them for any and all adventures.
