We are outdoors people who understand mountaineering, skiing, whitewater, sea kayaking, equine, marine and other non-motorized outdoors recreation risks. Pachner & Associates has a good relationship with insurers who respect both our insurance knowledge and our knowledge of outdoors activity organizations. We can represent you in a way that makes sense both to you, and to the insurers. Don Pachner writes a regular column on insurance issues for the American Mountain Guides Association and presents programs on outdoor recreation insurance issues for mountaineering, paddling and other sports.
We are brokers who represent you in your dealings with the insurers and go out of our way to provide an insurance program tailored to your coverage needs and budgetary needs.
