A day of swinging axes and kicking crampons on beautiful blue ice!
Ice Climbing Experience
SAFETY AND LEARNING ARE THE FOCUS, PLUS GETTING INTO SOME GORGEOUS UNTRACKED SNOW!
Beginners: First time climbers will be introduced to ice climbing at a smaller, easier wall. It’s a surprisingly simple activity that any moderately fit person can enjoy.
Intermediate to Advanced: More experienced climbers will be guided up the finest ice climbs matching their ability, and all under the direct supervision of a professional ACMG guide. We also have *multi-pitch ice route and *multi-day ice trip options please contact us for these options.
No climbing experience necessary. All ice climbing equipment is included. Experience an adventure unlike any other under the direct supervision of a professional guide.
What is the ice climbing experience?
To climb on Blackcomb you must be at least an intermediate skier or snowboarder to access the climbing site. Off-resort locations are available that do not require skiing depending on ice condition.
This is a Full Day Adventure starting at 8:30am and finishing at 4:30pm. Our favourable location is on Blackcomb mountain which requires access via the gondola.
Epic Day Ice Climbing with our guide Eric & MSAAWhat an amazing experience, our guide Eric was so easy going and helpful. We were pretty nervous going in as we didn't have much experience, luckily it was just myself and my brother and nobody else besides our guide. It was a spectacular day and we made our way up to the peak and then boarded down the beautiful glacier to a breathtaking ice rock.
Mountain skills Academy as a first rate group of professional instructorsThis is my second year returning to work with mountain skills Academy and Eric.
Eric took my children ice climbing for the day in the back country they had a phenomenal time and haven’t stopped talking about it yet
We had the greatest time thanks to Eric!Eric was such an experienced tour guide. It was just my partner and I in the tour, so we had plenty of time to climb and perfect our techniques. Eric was very patient and helpful and we have learned so much! Will definitely recommend 🙂
Amazing!Would 15000% do this again. Eric was awesome and we had the best day. So much harder than I originally thought but this made it so much more worth it. Thank you
Prepare for your adventure...
Ski Jacket & Pants
To keep yourself warm and dry during the day ski shell jacket & pants are a must!
It can get cold in the alpine (trust us!). Bring some extra layers to stay warm.
Sunscreen & Sun Glasses
It’s a great idea to bring sunglasses & sunscreen. The snow in the alpine makes everything but brighter!
