Overview:
RMI Expeditions is the premier mountain guiding service on Mt. Rainier and Denali. We also guide all the seven summits and many other peaks worldwide. Our busy season is April through September, but we have programs departing every month of the year. We focus on preparing for next summer’s operations, including Denali, and packing for all our international programs in the winter months. We employ over 70 mountain guides during the summer and provide summer housing for nearly all of them. All employees of RMI Expeditions not only enjoy but are encouraged to participate in a free Mt. Rainier Mountaineering Day School and Summit Climb each season.

We are looking for someone eager and ready to start as soon as possible.
