MICA Guides is all about opportunity. The opportunity to work in an amazing place with incredible people. The opportunity to learn the skills and gain the experience of an outdoor professional. The opportunity to be a part of a tight community that spans the globe. 

Our community of outdoor professionals believes in working hard, playing harder, and being our best every day. From guiding climbs and treks on the glacier, to skiing in Colorado, to working in Antarctica, you will not only be signing up for a job, but joining one big, adventurous family.

Requirements for each position vary but all applicants must:

  1. Have a legal right to work in the United States. Citizenship, residency or work visa.
    Sorry, we cannot sponsor your visa application.
  2. Have a valid Driver’s License from a US State and a good driving record.

  4. For 2022, all employees must be fully vaccinated against COVID19.


We have two types of positions:

  1. Internships and First Years are training positions, and we invest a lot of time and energy in that training.  Our internship program is a big part of who we are.  It’s more like a Trade School, with great job placement opportunities. All current staff started as interns.
  2. Professional positions require that you show up, and with a minimal amount of training, you’re ready to do your job. These positions are very limited as we more often “grow our own”.
