Our founder, Ken Fuhrer, has spent a lifetime dedicated to providing unforgettable experiences both skiing and hiking in the Alps and the Rocky Mountains. Based out of Telluride, Colorado, Alpenglow Ski Safaris is unique in the industry. We are the first and only Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) member school not affiliated with a ski area. This special arrangement recognizes our experience and opens up many opportunities. We also work closely with the American Institute of Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE).
The alpine countries of Europe have villages and cultures that have been maturing for many centuries and in many cases millennia. Imagine the ambiance of descending perfect snow covered slopes into charming medieval villages with wonderful accommodations.
We are people who have dedicated our lives to showing people the beauty of the mountains both in winter and summer. We have all achieved the highest international certifications as ski instructors and have worked in the ski arena for a cumulative 90 years.
Founded in 2003, Alpenglow Ski Safaris is dedicated to exploration. We take a fresh look at familiar places and search for the most rewarding terrain and the finest ski conditions.
