Whether you have years of ice climbing experience or have never climbed before this tour is for you! Experience the thrill of ice climbing tours while you move safely up a frozen waterfall using ice axes and crampons. No climbing experience is required, we’ll show you how.
Get ready for a full day of phenomenal ice climbing!
Beginners: 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.
Intermediate to Advanced: More experienced climbers will be guided up the finest ice climbs matching their ability, and all under the direct supervision of a professional ACMG guide. We also have *multi-pitch ice route and *multi-day ice trip options.
No climbing experience necessary. All ice climbing equipment is included. Experience an adventure unlike any other under the direct supervision of a professional guide.
Location: Availability are weather and temperature dependent and may require transportation or ski hill access (pass required).
Our favourable location is on Blackcomb mountain which requires access via the gondola. A pass can be purchased through MSAA at checkout. To climb on Blackcomb you must be at least an intermediate skier or snowboarder to access the climbing site.
Off-resort locations are available that do not require skiing depending on ice condition. Please inquire at time of booking.
All Adventures: Meet the guide at 8:15am the Escape Route Alpine Demo Centre.
The guide will have everyone sign a waiver before giving a trip briefing and gear check.
You will then head to the climbing location, whether this be by car to somewhere in the valley, or by lift onto the mountain. Expect a full day of ice climbing, including tips and tricks from the guide, with a lunch break around noon.
The day will end at the Escape Route Alpine Demo Centre with a trip debrief and return of rental gear.
All climbing equipment is included.
