MAXIM Partners & Cooperations

MAXIM Partners & Cooperations

American Mountaing Guides Association

The American Mountain Guides Association’s founding fathers were hardcore climbers and skiers who understood the outdoor culture thoroughly. They realized the soul of these sports didn’t have to be compromised by organization. Organization could instead serve to bring the community together in a revolutionary way. It could provide mountain guides with resources, services, and credentials to boost their careers, but also with connections to each other and to the larger community of guides and clients across the country and around the globe. Today the AMGA leads and promotes the guiding community with; AMGA Programs: Courses & Certifications, Memberships and Advocacy.

Most of us owe large portions of our climbing career to the Access Fund. This great organization saves public and private lands and enables them to stay or become open climbing areas.
