“Joseph’s competence at guiding cannot be overstated. His pre-trip planning and communication all the way through to working with each client’s unique goals and capabilities make him stand out among the pack.”

“Joseph is an incredible guide! Very knowledgeable and professional. Also so willing to teach which i appreciate as a fairly new climber. He tailors the guide to your experience level and what you’re looking to get out of it—whether it’s to just go climb or learn to lead or just get exposure to different rock types. Very accommodating as well in terms of climbing times and dates that work with your schedule.

I’ve used him twice now (and about to go for a 3rd time for ice climbing) and I’m sure I’ll continue to work with him as long as I climb.”

“Our objective was to get the experience of being in the backcountry while learning how to do it safely. Our guide Joseph (highly recommend him), did a great job of assessing our abilities and aligning those with a really great skin track ascent as well as great powder runs down. Throughout the day he would provide us insights into what things to be mindful of when in the backcountry: planning your trip, navigation, avalanche assessment, skin and skiing technique and more.

The entire experience was perfectly matched to push our abilities in every aspect without overwhelming. Joseph's background and personality really shined through when coaching us through different scenarios, giving us the confidence and knowledge to achieve our goals. Some of the best skiing we have ever done thanks to Joseph's meticulous snow condition assessments and planning.”

“Great Experience! Did a half day with Joseph Hobby while visiting Park City for a wedding. Very professional, took the time to teach this relative newbie, and made sure we were on rock that kept it challenging and fun without ever feeling unsafe.”

“I can’t recommend the guide (Joseph Hobby) enough!! He was super skilled, very passionate about the mountains, had lots of knowledge to share, and have the motivation needed to knock out this climb in a day. I will absolutely be booking again!”

Derek Dorio

“Joseph Hobby is an excellent guide who took plenty of time to teach solid techniques and ensure you hit your goals for the day. He also has a great approach to finding that balance of challenging yourself but maintaining safety. Five stars.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed working with the folks at CMA's office and my guide Joseph Hobby was fantastic. I highly recommend this company. While the name is new, the experience and knowledge of the Cascade region is not and I look forward to future trips with Cascade Mountain Ascents.”
