Description

Explore the wonders of Canada’s Glacier National Park on this amazing 4-day alpine climbing trip near Rogers Pass.

Located in the Canadian Rockies, this climbing site is ideal for those looking to learn new skills, enjoy a stunning landscape and increase their adrenaline levels for a few days.

We’ll start hiking up to Hermit Meadows, where we will set up our tent for the rest of the trip. From there, we will explore the nearby peaks (Swiss Peaks and Mount Tupper) while learning about mountaineering safety, equipment and techniques.

We’ll review topics such as site safety, hazard assessment, emergency protocols, and proper use, care and limitations of mountaineering equipment. The Rogers Pass is also great to learn about ice and snow travel techniques and anchors, how to use an ice axe and glacial travel methods, morphology and crevasses. In addition, we’ll master crevasses rescue.

For this trip, it is important that you rent (or bring your own) helmet, harness, backpack, crampons, ice axe, mountaineering boots, and glacial travel/crevasse rescue kit.

If you’re ready to gain new skills and explore the Glacier National Park, send your request! I would love to guide you through this incredible 4-day adventure.

About the guide

guide profile img

I'm a Full Alpine Guide with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides and an Active Member of the Canadian Avalanche Association.
I has climbed across the lower 48 United States, Western Canada, multiple expeditions to Alaska, and Greece. Calling Canmore home, I feel my best attribute is my passion for teaching and sharing what I have learned over the years of being in the mountains. Combining my mountain experience with my thousands of hours as an industrial rope access tech/supervisor, as well as, being a SAR Rope Rescue Leader, my guests can be assured that they are in good hands.

I holds an Adventure Guide Diploma through Thompson Rivers University, which is one of the world’s premiere adventure tourism programs where students spend two years refining their mountain craft and business skills associated with the adventure tourism industry.

I'm proud to be at a point in my career where I can guide full time and I'm able to share my love of the mountains with my guests. I'm always looking forward to the next adventure and building long lasting relationships with my guests. I'm one of those people who’s passion and love for life is contagious.
