First Ascent Mountain School’s expert guides lead outdoor adventurers on four-hour snowshoeing jaunts through the striking mountain scenery surrounding Pikes Peak. Snow stompers outfitted with trekking poles gain hands-on knowledge on the art and function of snowshoeing while viewing the picturesque high altitudes of Pikes Peak in the distance. From more than 14,000 feet above sea level, the frosty peaks provide a stunning backdrop for the hike, and the surrounding area plays host to an array of wildlife, such as yellow-bellied marmots and bighorn sheep donning designer fleece hoodies. Trekkers can indulge in complimentary snacks and hot chocolate while feasting their eyes on the sweeping views of their surroundings.

First Ascent Mountain School

John McDonough has spent his life rising to meet outdoor challenges. Years ago he began traveling the globe as a skier and rock climber, finding adventure and challenges on faraway mountains and snowy cliffs. After more than two decades on skis and 15 years scaling rocks, the AMGA Certified Single-Pitch Instructor––who once accompanied an inspiring group of blind climbers on a trip––now operates First Ascent Mountain School. The gig comes with the daily pleasure of watching beginners submit to the powerful sense of awe and accomplishment that comes with mountaineering. As First Ascent's founding director, John has assembled a small band of professional mountain guides who shared his zeal for nature and teaching. The crew touts a penchant for making the sometimes-intimidating activities of rock-terrain climbing and snowshoeing accessible to anyone who is interested.

Our guide was excellent and we had a great time - definitely recommend First Ascent. The office support was also outstanding - they are a great outfit!

Our guide, John was great. My buddy and I both had some climbing experience so John geared us towards climbs that were suited for us. John was knowledgable, eager to help and I think he enjoyed climbing with us as much as we did with him. Thanks for a great experience!
