Sierra Mountaineering International was founded by Kurt Wedberg in the fall of 1995 after he had been guiding professionally for ten years. SMI is currently positioned to guide climbs throughout the Sierra, Joshua Tree, and expeditions to all seven continents in the world.
His mission is to cultivate an atmosphere that allows for the best trips offered anywhere, to provide a climate for passing on and expanding mountaineering knowledge, and to create a healthy and positive working environment for professional mountain guides.
The goal with our clientele is to make a friend. In the process we do our best to give them the experience they came to us for and when possible exceed their expectations. We are extremely proud that we have so many repeat clients year after year. Many of our clients are available as references for people shopping for a guide service and their names are available upon request.
The top priority on all of our trips is safety. While mountaineering carries with it inherent dangers, we do everything within our ability to minimize the risk. Another important objective includes reaching the summit(s), or achieving the clients' intended goals on our trips. We always have a lot of fun and great food along the way!
We invite you to look through this web site and find a trip for you. If you have any questions, to sign up for a trip, or to discuss climbs not currently in our web site, please contact us at any time.
We look forward to seeing you in the mountains!
