About Us

In 1962, the first gondola opened in Colorado, safety bindings were just starting to be marketed, and MountainGuard wrote its first insurance policy. Since then, rope tows have given way to “high speed quads,” skis have gotten much shorter, and MountainGuard has become the largest writer of ski resort insurance in North America. As the ski industry has continued to evolve MountainGuard has evolved to meet the ever changing needs.

 

Today, MountainGuard is the choice of more ski resorts than any other insurance program, because we take a forward looking approach to risk with a clear focus on our clients needs. Our ability to help each of our clients adapt to the changing risks that they face, while always keeping an eye on the fundamentals, has established us as the benchmark in the industry for account management, claims handling, and proactive loss control. Whether you have 5,000 or 5,000,000 skier visits, your resort needs the expertise and experience that only MountainGuard can provide.
