Bill & Polly are our mentors and we are fortunate to continue to operate our business with their help and guidance. The Cunningham’s previously operated this business as High Country Adventures and are responsible for building a strong relationship with the Forest Service, other outfitters and the public that we continue to grow from. Bill Cunningham has outfitted hiking trips for over 30 years, and had been a partner of High Country Adventures for over 20. Bill’s wife, Polly joined the business in 2005.
Bill has a long history of environmental involvement as a staffer with The Wilderness Society, Montana Wilderness Association, and American Wildlands. He too has backpacked in Europe, New Zealand, Canada, Alaska, and throughout the West. He teaches wilderness courses through the University of Montana, has written several wilderness guidebooks, and writes a Wild Country column for Montana Magazine.
Polly Cunningham assisted on the trips in addition to designing menus and planning logistics for High Country Adventures. She and Bill have co-authored several hiking guidebooks. Bill and Polly live in Choteau, MT, where they enjoy this wild country year-round.
