Bear House Mountain Guiding was founded in 2016 by Co-Owners Derek and Susan DeBruin. After over a decade of adventuring together, the husband-wife team found Ogden, Utah to be an epicenter for outdoor adventure, featuring some of the best rock climbing and backcountry skiing that the Wasatch Range has to offer.
BHMG hires only guides and instructors who have been certified by the American Mountain Guides Association for the terrain in which they work. This ensures our clients benefit from a high standard for quality, safety, knowledge, and instruction.
It is the mission of Bear House Mountain Guiding to be the leader in climber and skier education here in the Wasatch.
It is our vision that Bear House Mountain Guiding will be the first choice of climbers and skiers in Utah. We will consistently strive to meet our clients where they are in their climbing or skiing, whether beginner or expert. We will knowledgeably facilitate experiences by safely encouraging our clients to strive for their goals, whatever they may be. We will actively contribute to the outdoor community that has nurtured us. We will value safety, education, service, inclusivity, and stewardship.
