Awesome Experiences with Knowledgeable Guides

I am so glad I chose Kaf Adventures for my AIARE 1 course!

After three seasons of backcountry skiing, it was high time to grow my own understanding of avalanche risk and safety, and not just rely on my ski friends who had AIARE training. I am so glad I chose Kaf Adventures for my AIARE 1 course! Mick and team are fantastic instructors with a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. They were well organized, patient, and incredibly supportive of each of the course participants, all with different needs and skill levels. At the same time, they encouraged everyone to step outside their comfort zones and challenge themselves. Kaf’s commitment to building community clearly sets them apart. The instructors, and the whole group of participants, were also a joy to hang out with! I haven’t laughed that much in a long time! I expected to come away with a solid base of understanding about winter backcountry safety, which I did, but what I hadn’t anticipated is how much fun I would have in the process and how welcomed I would feel! Highly, highly recommended!

Highly recommend

"Archer and Kevin were extremely helpful in teaching the proper mountain skills as well as helping us set goals for the weekend outside of just summiting the mountain, which I found really enjoyable making that personal connection and then sharing with the group."

Awesome trip!

"Everyone was professional, friendly, and totally committed to helping me achieve my climbing goals. I cannot say enough about Kaf, and encourage others to try them instead of one of the larger but less personal mountain guiding services based in the Seattle and North Cascades areas."

– Jonathan K. | Yelp
Great experience

"It was an amazing experience and had zero issues being on a rope team (my first time) and David was encouraging the whole way. This was a great experience for me and I recommend anyone use KAF for guiding needs. The entire staff is super helpful, SO NICE and very accommodating."

– Loricohe N. | TripAdvisor

"I appreciated that this was as much a guided tour as a class. Mick and Joel explained their decision making throughout the day. After assessing the avalanche risk, they put together a potential plan and then changed it as needed based on the conditions that day.

– Sara H. | Yelp
Awesome experience

"I enrolled in this class to learn how to belay for my 11-year-old daughter who has discovered a passion for climbing. Thanks to Matt's expertise and completely non-intimidating, beginner-friendly instruction, I feel like I have confidence and a great foundation to build on for years of climbing adventures with my daughter."
