Mountain Adventure Seminars (MAS)

Mountain Adventure Seminars (MAS)
Category:Special Events

Description:

Mountain Adventure Seminars (MAS) is a year-round mountaineering school and guide service based out of the BaseCamp Lodge in Bear Valley, California. MAS is owned and operated by Aaron & Kimi Johnson and is a reflection of their love for the outdoors and enthusiasm for playing, sharing and educating in "wild places". MAS has been operating since 1996 and is currently one of the top outdoor schools and guide services in the nation.

MAS operates a wide range of programs in Northern California. Rock climbing is the emphasis during the summer. Winter storms signal the beginning of our telemark ski school, avalanche education, and backcountry ski/snowboard and snowshoe adventures. When the days start to get a longer we begin mountaineering programs which last from early spring to mid-summer at which time the rock climbing programs are already in full swing. Its a busy lifestyle with many changes, but somebody has got to do it. We hope to see you out there.

MAS Mission Statement

* To provide exceptional mountaineering instruction and finely crafted adventures which offer an opportunity for retreat and renewal.
* To create a community where relationships are based on integrity, cooperation and trust; where work is sustainable, meaningful and rewarding and personal growth is encouraged through learning and communication.
* To nurture an appreciation for wild places and develop a sense of stewardship for our surroundings.
* To lead by example.

MAS Professionalism

MAS is committed to providing the highest level customer satisfaction. Through training, certification, reviews and strict hiring guidelines, MAS is able to offer a level of professionalism which surpasses the industry standard. MAS prides itself in consistently exceeding expectations and is proud to have a high rate of returning customers (88%).

MAS is accredited by the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA). AMGA Accreditation is a thorough review of business policies and field practices.
