Need a wilderness medical expert for a presentation?

They can speak on a variety of topics, or focus on a subject of particular relevance to your organization.

Integrated Training Exercises

We are always interested in working with other agencies on multi-disciplinary training exercises that bring together technical rescue, hazmat, fire suppression, medical school programs, air evacuation, and tactical operations.

All you have to do is give us a call to start customizing a course to your organization’s exact needs. It costs nothing to explore the possibilities with us.

Once we receive the required information we will work with you to design a structure for your course or seminar.

We will help to facilitate all of the logistics for your convenience.

Contact our staff and we can begin the creative process!

Along with your custom course Itinerary and Curriculum we will build a custom equipment list as well.

Whether you are a small group wanting to explore the backcountry or a large corporate group wanting to discuss heat and cold related illness we will build appropriate equipment lists for both our instructors and our students.

We are happy to help build a specific course curriculum to fit your needs.

Important Information

We strongly recommend you purchase Trip Cancellation Insurance upon booking and Emergency Evacuation insurance.

Emergency Evacuation and Medical

This coverage provides you with emergency air rescue if required and full medical. Parks Canada provides free evacuation within the Parks and if you are a Canadian resident your medical will be covered by National Health.

We strongly recommend international visitors purchase this insurance. Emergency evacuation insurance is also compulsory for all our hut trips, as these typically take place outside of Parks Canada’s jurisdiction.

Trip Cancellation Insurance

To prepare for unforeseen circumstances we strongly recommend purchasing Trip Cancellation Insurance at the time of booking your trip. Trip Cancellation insurance covers many scenarios to reimburse you for cancelled trips outside of your control.

Our recommended insurance provider is Tugo.Com who can be reached via the following:

All course prices are quoted in Canadian Dollars and are exclusive of a 5% Federal GST. Prices are subject to change.

Full payment is required at time of registration. Our preferred method of payment is by Mastercard or VISA through our online payment portal. We also accept Credit Card payment over the phone, bank transfer and cash.

Mountain Skills Academy takes mountain safety very seriously, however there is no way to completely mitigate risk in alpine environments. Prior to undertaking any of our courses or trips we require you to sign a waiver.

Mountain conditions are extremely unpredictable and can change at short notice. Our guides endeavor to undertake the routes and/or peaks that our clients desire, however our decisions will be impacted by conditions. Unfortunately we are not able to offer refunds if conditions are not suitable to undertake a particular route on the day you have booked. We will however make every effort to take you out for the best day possible given the conditions.

Applicable to all tours and courses*: If conditions force us to cancel a course or trip we will do all we can to accommodate you at another date. If this isn’t possible we will offer a full refund. We reserve the right to decline rescheduling dates based on availability. *Does not apply to First Aid and WFR courses.
