Trip Cancellation Insurance

As there are many unforeseen circumstances that may occur during or leading up to the trip, we highly recommend trip cancellation insurance.

In many situations, this may be the only way to receive a refund for unused services.

In brief, trip cancellation insurance may allow you to receive reimbursement if you need to cancel your expedition when you are not entitled to a refund from Alpine Ascents.

Alpine Ascents International offers a plan in conjunction with our travel insurance partner.

After my experience with AAI, there’s no way I would climb with any other guide service out there. The program was awesome. I can’t think of a single thing you could do to improve it. I loved the experience.

    Gear Review: The North Face Phantom 50 pack

    By Mike Hawkins “Man, this is a really great pack…” I said it over and over for months until my wife had finally had enough of it. She had to get one for herself.  While 50 liters is a little small for most multi-day mountaineering and winter ski tours, the small size is plenty versatile […]
