MIKE LEWIS, M.A. 
IFMGA/AMGA Certified Mountain Guide
Ski, Alpine, Rock

I began skiing at a very young age and climbing during my college freshman year in 1992. I began instructing right away at 19 years old and have been pursuing the art of guiding and instructing ever since.

I deeply enjoy helping my clients find enjoyable and appropriately challenging adventures. And no matter the activity, safety is always the first priority!

I primarily work for the
Colorado Mountain School, and I have the ability to work through a variety of other services throughout the U.S. and the world (to gain access to their permitted areas). I especially enjoy developing a client base of folks with whom I climb over and over again. I also enjoy creating customized trips for individuals or groups of friends.

Please continue to explore my website to learn more about the areas I most often guide, the types of guiding I do, and about the experience of guided climbing and skiing in general.


Lunchbox Jackson - This nickname was given to me by a good friend while we traveled on the road and has stuck among groups of friends around the country. Below are some of my favorite accomplishments as a skier and climber...
