Squamish VIA FERRATA
On this 1-1.5 hour adventure, you easily grab and step on ladder-like rungs, cross exhilarating suspension bridges, and take in the scenic beauty of ocean fjords and snowy peaks all while safely attached to the rock with fixed cables.
Ice Climbing Experience
First time climbers will be introduced to ice climbing at a smaller, easier wall. It’s a surprisingly simple activity that any moderately fit person can enjoy. No climbing experience necessary. All ice climbing equipment is included.
There is no better place in the world to learn backcountry skiing than Whistler and our guides will ensure you have an enjoyable and educational day. This is a must-do tour to complete your stay in Whistler.
Step into a winter wonderland on amazing trails of old-growth forests with ancient cedars in geologically interesting landscapes. Let us take you on a rejuvenating excursion to our favourite areas and experience a unique atmosphere of natural beauty at a relaxing and enjoyable pace.
THE MSAA EXPERIENCE
The Height of Entertainment!My son and I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon this Sky Walk hike. Our excellent guide was Mike Vert. He was very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. We were lucky enough to be the only two on the hike, which allowed for us to stop here and there to watch and listen to the wildlife and enjoy the scenery.
The best Glacier Tour ever!I had a great time with our guide April, who's so knowledgeable and entertaining. I took some tours in the past in Alaska, but it was the best for me and I totally recommend this tour to everyone including beginners. We could start from the very basic step on the glacier and never felt too scary because April always pull me and support.
Amazing experience - will never forget!I signed up for the Intro to Backcountry course and was quite nervous due to my lack of experience in the backcountry. Our guide, April, was extremely patient and understanding. I was definitely the slowest and the least experienced haha, but I never felt pressured and April and the group were incredibly helpful and reassuring. I can't recommend this course enough.
Squamish rock climbingGreat ½ day rock climbing 1 adult and 2x kids in Squamish with Marcus W. He was attentive and keen to teach, very supportive and helpful. The climbing was top quality and lots of fun. 10/10 would climb again!
