Payment

We take Visa and Mastercard, cash and checks. We will charge your outstanding balance to the credit card you placed the original order on unless otherwise instructed. You may also pay the balance by sending a check to: Fox Mountain Guides, 3228 Asheville Hwy, Pisgah Forest, NC, 28768.

Availability

Courses and guiding is offered right through the year, yes we guide 12 months of the year as the weather can be 70° in January down here in the South! If you don't see a course date that fits your schedule, give us a call. Early booking is essential as some courses are fully booked up to 2 months in advance (especially guiding days May through September). Last minute bookings are sometimes available so please call or email the office to find out availability.

Trip Insurance

We strongly suggest you look into 'trip insurance' as this may protect you from losing your money if you have to cancel your booking at the last minute. We have done research and have had good feedback from clients that have used AIG Travel Guard. We think it is a prudent way to protect your course and money if you have to cancel your booking.

Out of state charges vary and should be discussed with the office before you book. Clients may wish to make arrangements with their guide to provide transportation to avoid this fee.

Camping and food costs are not included in any of the multiple day courses we offer (apart from our Teen Summer Camps and New Hampshire Ice Courses and Guiding).

Emergency Information

Please be aware that advanced medical care is normally over an hour away from the climbing and course sites, cell phones mostly do not work in the areas that the courses are run. All medical concerns, old injuries, and medications should be discussed with the Guide prior to the course or day of guiding.
