Awesome tour, My husband and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Ellie (our tour guide) was very friendly and professional and went above and beyond to book my husband and I into the SkyBistro (which she didn’t have to do) so that we could have a romantic dinner together,We also left our bags in the bus at the bottom of Sulfur Mountain and our bags were brought to us (which they didn’t have to do) we were so happy she could do this for us.

We went up on the first time available! We had clear sky’s. It snowed over night and we attempted the hike to the summit but did not have poles or our spikes for our shoes. It was very slippery so we heard down. It clouded in and started snowing. We enjoyed a coffee at the top. On a clear dry this would be amazing! The views incredible!
Very knowledgeable guide. The weather was rainy but we did get some nice views. We finished early so the guide asked if we would like to visit a nearby canyon which we did. It was very considerate of him to offer us that/
It was right on time & so smooth. The view was Amazing The weather was good but so snowy up top that we couldn’t walk around but that’s ok Thanks very much!!
Our guide Jacob was excellent. He made sure we got to the summit safely and shared a variety of informations with us. We would recommend this hike!
