Good judgement comes from experience. If you give the mountains enough chances, they will provide you with feedback. If you’re lucky, you’ll live. Avalanche mentorship is an invaluable opportunity along the hazardous path to proficiency. Allow us to share our experiences as professional ski guides and avalanche educators, and provide you with friendly feedback in the context of a day of touring.

Baker Mountain Guides instructors are passionate backcountry skiers and snowboarders who believe that avalanche education has the power to save lives. These values are reflected in the quality of our Avalanche Mentorship Tours.


Baker Mountain Guides offers scheduled one-day avalanche mentorship tours following each Bellingham based AIARE level 1 Avalanche Course.

  • Single Day

    Avalanche Mentorship Tours are crafted to suit the needs of our clients. Your mentor for the day will review hazard assessment and planning. The tour will focus on observational and decision making skills, with an emphasis on justifying our terrain choices.
