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 get 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.
Climbing Mt. Rainier with Alpine Ascents is officially one of the best experiences of my life, one I will tell to anyone who will listen. Spending two nights on the mountain, at Muir and high camp, really works in breaking up the climb into easy sections, allows for a rest and time to take in the amazing views. The ratio of guides to climbers makes for a more personal summit day climb, which is something I really appreciate.
