Winter Ski Clinics

At Mountain Skills Academy & Adventures, taking people into the mountains is how it all started. We are pleased to be one of the go-to guiding companies for Squamish & Whistler Mountaineering. We love to take people into the high mountains on treks they will always remember. Our top guides know the terrain and the best route options.

What is a clinic?

A clinic is not a course, it is building and refining skills so that they are applied in an efficient and effective manner, which then leads to a strong structured foundation for a safe, rewarding trip and rapid future progression.
