You might want to check with Reuben Bakker at Journey Aviation in Boulder (he's actually based at Jeffco). He is very well versed in mountain flying and will fly in your airplane. I have experienced a number of instructors that only want to fly in their airplanes that you have to rent. My only concern is how you get from California to Colorado. Hope this helps.

You might try out these guys:

They are located in the mountains about a 40 minute flight from Boise, Id. They back up their classes with some dual, landing at genuine Idaho Back-country strips.
