This is my second adventure with Laurie and she again exceeded my expectations! Always so patient in her methods and very informative. She knows how to provide constructive criticism while maintaining a supportive vibe. I look forward to taking another class/adventure with her soon!

Trip: OPEN - Winter Hiking Series

Guide: Ethan V.

Our hike today with Ethan was beyond expectations. Ethan met us at the Highland Center and took great interest in making sure we had a memorable day. He began the day with describing clothing, gear and nutrition required for a successful hike. The pace he set to the summit was great and he also spent every opportunity to tell us about the flora and fauna along the way. We’ll certainly do this again! Thank you!

Trip: Women's OPEN - Steep Ice Climbing

Guide: Laurie W.

It was a perfect day for Steep Ice climbing. I was first time ice climbing so a bit nervous, Laurie was nice and very helpful, tons of information to guide me and put my mind at ease. Her career change is another inspirational story! Total admiration.

Trip: Women's Open - Ice Climbing Skills Clinic

Guide: Laurie W.

Laurie was an amazing guide with so much knowledge to share. Each one of us in the group had no ice climbing experience. She was warm and patient with us. She challenged us and recognized our limitations almost right out of the gate. I could not of asked for a better guide and cannot wait for my next adventure. The gear was well kept and safety was always the number 1 priority. I will definitely be requesting Laurie as my guide again.

Trip: Ice Climbing Skills Course

Guide: Laurie W.

Laurie is an awesome guide & I highly recommend her! Very attentive with great communication skills. She provided excellent feedback & words of encouragement and being a first timer to ice climbing I greatly appreciated that. Her good natured, easy going personality made my adventure a memorable one and I hope to climb again soon. Thank you Laurie and Mooney Mtn! Rock (or is it ice in this case?) on! ✌️
