"The week I spent with CGO doing my Mountain Leader training was excellent. The course leader and the other two staff there to help were fantastic. Every section of the course combined learning and having fun in a way that reflected the passion that these facilitators have about their jobs. We were blessed with perfect weather which contributed to the general positive vibe me and others got from the whole course. The course was very thorough and I came away feeling exhausted (but in a good sense!). I had such a positive experience - it definitely confirmed my love of the mountains! I plan to do my Mountain Leader assessment with CGO in the summer. I would definitely recommend doing a course with them. Professional and lots of laughs!"
