All about us / Honour of moral


The Swiss Mountain Sports School association was founded in 1969 and has since, been growing continuously. Today 34 mountaineering organisations with all the eminent guide offices, mountaineering- and alpine schools in Switzerland belong to the association.

The Swiss Mountain Sports School is the main employer of mountain guides and mountain guide candidates.

All association members work highly professional when organizing and conducting tours, courses and mountain events. In addition they are committed to an honour of moral.

Honour of moral – quality and saftey

The Swiss Mountain Sports School committs itself to conduct and run all alpine tours and courses through licenced mountain guides. For all other sport events only appropriate and qualified instructors will be appointed. Safety and success as well as the customers satisfaction are priority. Thus, the number of participants per mountain guide will vary according to the difficulty and aim of a tour or course.
