Kling Mountain Guides (KMG) merged with Aspen Expeditions Worldwide (AEW) in late 2018, bringing together over 5 decades of experience in Southwest Colorado and beyond. We offer extensive four-season mountain guiding in both the San Juan Mountains surrounding Durango and Silverton, as well as the central Elk Mountains surrounding Aspen and Snowmass. AEW is a proud The North Face-sponsored guide service. We pride ourselves on a high degree of professionalism; all of AEW/KMG Mountain Guides are trained/certified under the American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA).
We acknowledge our position on the traditional territory of the Ute Peoples. AEW operates under special use permits in the San Juan National Forest, Gunnison BLM, Moab & Monticello BLM, Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, and Mt. Rainier National Park. AEW provides services and employment regardless of ethnic or cultural heritage, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or physical handicap.
We look forward to tailoring a custom mountain adventure for you soon!
