Testimonials

“From ice climbing technique and instruction to my first ever multi pitch ice climb in the beautiful Montanta back country, Sam Magro and MAG provided an enjoyable, challenging, and safe experience. I would definitely recommend them.”

“Thanks so much for a great day. Peter was fantastic. He was great with the kids and made the day fun. Having never ice climbed, I absolutely loved the experience and will definitely try it again next time in Montana. Thanks again for accommodating our little ones.”

Carrie Dino

“Everyone couldn’t have been nicer – and quite the crew – Pete and Stephen were terrific!  Pete was able to guide me thru my hesitation and gave excellent tips- inspired confidence.  He has such a natural way of setting people at ease … ”

“Montana Alpine Guides is one of the best guide services in the country. We’ve been working with Sam and his team since 2010 and its always a pleasure to get outdoors with MAG! Regardless of who we bring in as climbers, with different mental and physical health challenges, people leave motivated, excited, and stoked on the mountains!”

“I come back every year to ice-climb with Sam (Montana Alpine Guides).  He’s a great climber, a great teacher, has outstanding knowledge of the area, and always puts safety first. Sam puts the fun into serious climbing.”
