Private Mountaineering & Instruction
Location: Coast Mountains
Duration: 1 Day
Prerequisites: Dependent on objective
Instruction is professionally provided in the safest and most supportive environment by our certified ACMG and MSAA guides and our cutting-edge curriculum. The course is suitable for those with or without previous climbing experience.
There are a multitude of spectacular alpine climbs and mountaineering objectives within the Squamish – Whistler areas.
If you have a route or objective in mind that you don’t see on our site, consider taking a privately guided trip to help you realize your mountaineering goal.
We will work with you to plan your custom adventure.
If you require rentals or need to purchase equipment, we have teamed up with the experts at the Escape Route Alpine Demo Centre. Follow the link HERE to purchase or rent gear for this course!
Weather conditions are constantly changing in the Canadian alpine. Be prepared for both hot or cold days and even rain. There are several rain protected climbing venues we endeavour to utilize but it is essential that you pack enough clothing to be prepared for any weather conditions. So please dress according to the forecast for the course days and pack clothes for varying conditions.
We recommend the following:

- Synthetic or wool t-shirt

We have rental equipment available if needed, but we highly recommend using your own gear so you can get comfortable with it under the guide’s instruction.
