57hours Mission Statement

We love adventure and the great outdoors. We’ve traveled, explored, climbed, skied, surfed, you-name-it wherever and however our 57hours allows. We want to share with you our favorite locations and the expert guides who were there with us every step of the way. Whether you want to check out the best climbing spots in Red Rocks, or see what a pro skier has to say about pristine POW in Canada, discover your next adventure with us, on 57hours.

The barrier to entry for adventure isn’t as out of reach as you may think!

Learn from the best

Making the progression from climbing a 5.9 to a 5.11 in trad-style took some of us fifteen years. Yup. And some of us got there in only a year or two. That gap in the learning curve speaks to the tremendous difference a skilled and caring guide, educator or coach can make in your personal development. We know that you can make giant leaps in attaining your personal goals and pushing your outdoor limits too. Whether your passion is backcountry skiing, rock climbing, alpinism or any other outdoor pursuit, try your next adventure with a guide and get a jump on that learning curve!

Find awesome outdoor adventures

Have you ever tried to find an outdoor package or book a guide for an upcoming ski or rock climbing trip? Have you? The process can take hours, even days! There’re so many options for so many locations, not to mention how daunting it can be to sort through your Google search results looking for that diamond in the rough. 57hours is the platform where you and other outdoor lovers can find and learn about the best guided adventures. We know every guide we recommend and we can guarantee that each guide is passionate about his or her clients’ needs and education.

Help guides and instructors build sustainable careers

Did you know that most guides struggle to make a living during the first 10-15 years of their careers? That’s how long it can take for new guides to build a significant client base! Many aspiring guides struggle to keep up with expenses as their income often doesn’t meet their basic needs or educational investments. Our platform connects you directly with the guides and their wonderful programs, enabling a better experience for everyone involved.
