What to bring
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!
