PGS In The News

Our trips and stories have been featured in the American Alpine Journal, Outside Magazine, The Ski Journal, Backcountry Magazine, Skiing Magazine and more.
Martin Volken recently did a couple interviews with Alpin a German magazine based in Berlin as well as 4-Seasons Das Outdoor-Magazin von Transa based in Switzerland. If you read German these are both great articles not only about Martin Volken, but the beautiful North Cascades that are our backyard.
Margaret Wheeler featured in Dartmouth Alumni Magazine Jan/Feb 2013.
Martin Volken, Founder and Owner of Pro Guiding Service AND Pro Ski AND Mountain Service, was featured AS a "Seattle 100."  "Seattle 100 invites each of us to survey our own surroundings, our lives, our friends—and those not yet our friends—that make up the place we all live, whether thatʼs Seattle or anywhere else."

"This was my fourth trip with PGS since 2009. Our guide Trevor, like the guides on previous trips, did an outstanding job. His expertise was obvious, and he reiterated the PGS philosophy of safety and efficiency of movement. His familiarity with the terrain and route finding in occasionally poor visibility was spot on, he promoted a relaxing and positive atmosphere, and he was an enjoyable guy to spend time in the mountains with. Another thing I've noticed about PGS trips is that you can count on meeting great people; you'll quickly feel like you're on a trip with friends instead of people you just met. And now I just have to figure out which trip (or trips) I'll do next season."  Doug McDonnal  FULL Trip Report Here
