After a very fruitful winter of snowshoeing, ice climbing and backcountry skiing and riding, summer is finally beginning to rear its beautiful face. And that means summer adventures are right around the corner! With the warmer weather in the Sea to Sky recently, our Squamish rock climbing courses and adventures are already in motion in the lower parts of the valley. But our beloved Squamish Via Ferrata course is situated around the top of the Sea to Sky Gondola, which meant there was a bit more snow to clear.
Not satisfied to wait for Mother Nature’s melt, a couple of weeks ago our ardent staff at MSAA rolled up their sleeves and took to the Squamish Via Ferrata course with shovels. After a big day of snow-moving and some more cooperative weather, we’re glad to announce that the Squamish Via Ferrata is open! Our Whistler Via Ferrata remains closed for now, but we’ll be hiking over snow and glaciers to reach Whistler Peak before too long.
Remember that Via Ferrata is an all-weather activity suited for all ages and abilities. Dressing in warmer clothes (or bringing them with you in a rucksack) with a waterproof jacket is important this time of year.
If you’re looking to experience not just one, but TWO of the most picturesque via ferrata courses in Western Canada, look no further! We know it can be hard to decide between our Whistler and Squamish via ferrata courses, so MSAA is offering $10 off when you book both tours at the same time.
