Equipment Sponsors

Mountaineering in the Alaska Range, particularly on the higher mountains is as hard on equipment as any place on earth. AMS purchases equipment that does the job and holds up the best. A couple companies stand out and represent the majority of the equipment we use:


AMS represents over 25 years of mountaineering in the Alaska Range. During this time, we have forged relationships with other guide services, climbing schools, and educational organizations that help further our mission.


AMS hires over fifty guides and instructors each season. In the off-season they scatter all over the world and do some pretty interesting things. Here are links to what some of them do.
