Apex Mountain School opened for business in 2002. Its location: none other than  the world famous resort area of Vail, Colorado. Apex’s founding director, Scott Smith, is professionally trained as a mountain guide by the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA), and has extensive disciplinary trainings including wilderness medicine, self-rescue and avalanche preparedness training. Scott has been climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, biking and exploring the backcountry of the Western U.S. for nearly 25 years- and guiding for 10. He shares his strong passion for the outdoors with his fellow guides and visitors from all over the world.

As Apex continues to grow, so does our guiding staff. Many of our guides lead trips and pursue personal  travels to major mountain epicenters around the world. Apex continues to seek out and attract some of the best mountain guiding talent in Colorado.

Our director has strived to build the culture of the company on client satisfaction and safety. We believe that our passion for the outdoors, world-class guiding and risk management will keep you coming back for more- year after year. Apex’s significant refferal and return clientele base is a clear testament to the success of this model.

We look forward to seeing you soon, and to continuing to provide first-class guided mountain adventures for decades to come.
