Adventure Information

A day of swinging axes and kicking crampons on beautiful blue ice! Whether you have years of ice climbing experience or have never climbed before this tour is for you!

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.

No climbing experience necessary. All ice climbing equipment is included. Experience an adventure unlike any other under the direct supervision of a professional guide.

Locations and date availability are weather and temperature dependent and may require transportation or ski hill access at extra cost. 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. Please inquire at time of booking.

*Subject to a minimum number of participants. 48 hour notice will be given if minimum number has not been reached.
