Climbing Mount Athabasca, 2 days in the Canadian Rockies

Jeff is an exceptional individual and excellent mountain guide. Our climb up Athabasca was a truly amazing experience. I saw a sea of mountain peaks that I had never seen before. Alpine air adventures offers in my opinion the best value for money when it comes to alpine climbing. Highly recommended!

Climbing Mount Athabasca, 2 days in the Canadian Rockies

We have been going on mountaineering and ski trips with Jeff Bullock for about five years now. Most recently, we climbed Mt. Athabasca with Jeff in August 2020. No matter what the adventure, we love Jeff’s approach to guiding. We always feel safe going with him and always have a great time. Jeff brings humility, humour, honesty, a passion for teaching and great stories. We will continue to do our dream trips with Jeff and Alpine Air Adventures in the future!

If you’re looking for a challenge, take on the technically difficult Granite Peak (3901 m) ascent in Montana. Climbing Grand Teton (4,199 m) in Wyoming is definitely one to add to your mountaineering bucket list too. Another great option would be to head to the top of Maroon Bells (4,273 m) in Colorado
