Would you like to enjoy a unique ice climbing adventure in Canada? Then join me on this exciting program in Alberta. From Banff and Canmore to Lake Louise, there is a good reason why so many people yearn to visit this wonderful western province. One of the places I would like to show you is the amazing Bow valley, where you can enjoy a full day of exciting ice climbing.

Boasting stunning scenery, the Bow Valley is an incredible place. Within the valley, you can enjoy great views of the Rockies. You can also admire the valley’s gorgeous lakes as well, from the Vermilion lake to the Ghost lake. And because this is an ice climbing trip, the higher you go, the more you will get to see.

If you don’t have ice climbing experience, I can offer you an intro to ice climbing. If you are more advanced, I can show you more challenging ice climbing spots! Whichever your case, you are welcome to join.

During this trip, along with the fun, you’ll have climbing an amazing icefall, you will also get to learn a number of important ice climbing skills. Some examples of those skills include ice climbing safety and basic rope management, which involves belaying and lowering on top rope climbs.

Have you ever wanted to try ice climbing? Then book your place now and join me on this exciting program or on an intro to ice-climbing tailored to your needs!

I can also take you on a 5-day splitboarding adventure near Lake Louise!

Although Jeff was meant to be the lead guide we actually had Josh Mojorossy from Golden. An amazing guide for ice climbing and such a helpful person. He agreed to give me a lift on the day of climbing which I was so grateful for. All correspondence was very clear, and Richard met me the evening before climbing to issue gear. A fist class service All round. Many thanks to all involved.

Ben guided us to Marble Canyon and it was a really awesome and rewarding experience! Ben was really cool and relaxed about everything, the whole process was made extremely simple, and he went so far as to teach us a little more than we had originally expected to learn. We got extremely lucky with the weather and hiked back with blue skies and the sun shining! Thank you very much!!

Absolutely exceeded expectations! Everyone had a great time with more than enough variety to satisfy everyone’s skill level. Would definitely recommend to anyone with an interest in getting started or progressing their ice climbing.
