Where do I find out about Bigfoot Mountain Guides course offerings?You can look on the schedule or contact us. Every single program we offer can be run privately and with a low client:guide ratio.
What are your Instructor:Participant ratios?
Many organizations advertise low ratios for a better participant experience. In a climbing environment, 6:1 is not a low ratio. All of our programs are run at a 4:1 ratio or lower. Most programs are run privately on a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio.
What if there's a course I want to take and I don't see it on your schedule?By all means contact us. Shoot us an email. Due to the low-ratio nature of most climbing instruction many of our course offerings aren't listed on the schedule. In fact, the only programs listed on the schedule are longer trips or higher ratio programs. Contact us and we'll try to help you set something up.
Can my group do a half day?We do offer half day programs. Pricing of half days reflects the fact that travel time to the cliff is the same for a full day as it is for a half day.
What equipment is provided by Bigfoot Mountain Guides?
We will provide all technical equipment for climbing. Climbing shoes, harnesses, helmets, rope, and other gear is provided. You are responsible for wearing sturdy footwear and dressing appropriately for the weather on the day you spend with us. If you have questions about what to bring or wear contact us.
How will my group get to the climbing area?You are responsible for your own transportation throughout the day. You'll need to meet your guide at a pre-arranged location and then follow them to the climbing area where you'll spend the day.
How do I pay for my trip?
Like many small businesses we prefer cash or check, but accept credit card payments as well. We will call you to secure a 50% deposit prior to your trip
