Why MAG (Montana Alpine Guides)?

Our lead guides have over 20  years of climbing experience in the South Fork with several first ascents in the areas in which we guide. We have both male and female guides with average experience in the area around 15 years.  Historically we have represented the “most local” guide service for Cody, WY ice climbing in the South Fork of the Shoshone.

The South Fork of the Shoshone ranks as one of the top four ice climbing destinations in the country. What makes Cody stand out from the rest, is the high quantity of 5-star multi-pitch ice climbs from WI3- WI7. Due to its geographic location, the “rain shadow” effect equates to very little snow and one can often approach on dry ground. There are very few locations on the continent that have this unique combination. For trips to Cody, we encourage participants to book at least two to three days to make the travel worthwhile.

All trips to Cody’s South Fork are custom bookings. You pick the dates, times, objectives, or instructional focus. Contact us to customize your outing or choose from existing course outlines and pick your own dates and times.
