Description

When it comes to exciting and beautiful mountain ranges in the world, the Canadian Rockies are definitely at or near the top. Right there with mythical ranges like the Andes, the Alps and the Himalayas, the Rockies are truly astounding.

On this trip that can last one or several days if you wish, I would like to guide you on an ice climbing adventure in the Rockies. Due to the sheer size and scope of this amazing mountain range, the options as to where we can go are abundant. As a result, based on several factors, from your skill level and desires to the weather and snow conditions, together, we will choose the perfect spot for you.

Our climbing area will be in the Ghost River valley in the province of Alberta. The valley stretches from just west of Calgary all the way to Jasper. Below are just a few examples of the spots you can climb.

  • Cascade Falls – Ghost Valley – W13 400m

  • The House of Sky – Banff – W13 300m

  • Louise Falls – Lake Louise – W14 110m

  • The Professor Falls – Banff – W14 280m

  • Weeping Wall – Icefields Parkway – W1 4-5+ 160m

  • Johnston Canyon single pitch venue – Banff – W1 3-5+

Each one of these spots offers not only an exciting climb, but spectacular views. And because of the variety, even if you decided to ice climb at each one of these spots, you’d be getting a completely unique and memorable experience.

Ice climbing in the Canadian Rockies is thrilling. It is mesmerizing. And on this trip, I would be happy to guide you. If that sounds like something you would like to do, just send me a request. 

I can also take you ice climbing in the beautiful Bow valley as well.

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.

I was very glad to have the Back country ski tour in Montata by following reasons. 1. I had quick replies from my coordinator and guide whenever I asked something; 2. My guide was cool. 3. The tour was well-planned and appropriate duration. 4. Snow was in a good condition. Thank you!!

Poor service from Explore-share! The vendor who provided the actual tour shared with Explore-share that heavy rains prevented them from doing a substantial section of the tour. I was not notified. The vendor also offered a substantial discount for what we were able to do and this was not shared with me either!

Neil was our guide and he was amazing! We did Camelback mountain climbing and he knew all about it and the other nearby mountains. Lots of great info and fun. I took my two boys, 9 and 11 years old plus climbed myself (44 years old). So perfect for all ages and skill levels. Definitely worth doing!!!

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
