Student & Youth

Unplug from technology and head out into the mountains! Our highly trained guides uphold our impeccable safety record, all while making the trip as enjoyable as possible whether hiking, introducing rock climbing, or trying backcountry skiing for the first time. We believe any time spent outside is valuable especially when we send them home with unforgettable memories and new skills.


There are many options for your next corporate outing or team building activity. At MSAA we believe bringing colleagues together in the outdoors is the best way to break down social barriers and build connections. With skilled guides leading the group, participants will encourage each other through a challenging environment of your choosing. Hike to a view point, cross an ancient glacier, try climbing on our unique Via Ferrata routes in Squamish and Whistler, or test your mettle on a rappelling adventure. After a day out with MSAA, we guarantee your team will head back to the office with a sense of camaraderie and some exciting stories!
