Adventure + Charitable Giving = BMI

The Boulder Mountain Institute (BMI) is more than just a professional mountain guide and coaching service— it is a conduit for giving. Unlike other backcountry guide services, our charitable mission is at the heart of our work. All fees after hard costs are donated directly to non-profit organizations that support safe, sustainable practices and provide life changing outdoor recreation experiences.


We offer a wide array of winter and summer outdoor adventures including:

  • Backcountry skiing and snowboarding
  • Snowshoeing
  • Avalanche education
  • Hut trips
  • Rock climbing
  • Hiking


We operate in Clear Creek Canyon, the Flatirons of Boulder, and Boulder Canyon, as well as in Rocky Mountain National Park. BMI also hosts extended trips in Alaska, Patagonia and the Canadian Rockies.

Fun & Safety

From adventure touring to personal coaching, The Boulder Mountain Institute is dedicated to helping clients achieve their individual goals under the guidance of our skilled skilled experts, while also giving to organizations that matter. We emphasize safety, smart decision making and having fun on every trip.
