Why AC/AAI?

Though the Institute is especially well known for its advanced training and expeditions, its international reputation is based on its dedication to teaching (at all skill levels from beginners' to masters' levels), its high level of customer service, the outstanding skills of its staff, and its public service in the areas of environmental protection and public lands policy.

Testimonials

"Few things in life turn out to be as advertised. The Alpinism 1 program I just completed is one of those few, and more. It was an overwhelmingly positive experience. Thanks for a marvelous time, and best regards."
David Bruhn, USA
