Tipping your child’s guide:

Parents may wish to tip there child’s guide for, and while this is never expected,  it is always greatly appreciated. Many clients call the office to ask “how much should I tip?”  This is totally up to you. Tips for climbing guides typically track those in other industries like restaurants and hair stylists.

Please note that it is not possible to add a tip to your balance when paying with a credit card or check made payable to Fox Mountain Guides. If you do wish to tip your guide for a great day you may do so with cash or a personal check made payable to the guide.
