Hyalite Canyon, Beginner Ice Climbing Course | undefined

If you are a beginner to ice climbing and want to learn the basics then this full day course with one of our AMGA certified guides in the Hyalite Canyon in Montana is for you.

1 Day

Jan - Apr, Dec




The Hyalite canyon in Montana is an internationally recognised and renowned site for ice climbing.

For a full day, we would like to instruct beginners on the techniques necessary for safe and fun ice climbing. There are several wonderful ice walls to choose from at the Hyalite canyon. And because of our extensive experience in the area, we will select the perfect one for you.

As exciting as ice climbing can be, it can also be very intimidating.  As a result, we will see to it that you are comfortable from the moment you put on your gear to the moment the course ends.

Throughout the day, you will learn a number of important skills that will aid you not only on this day trip, but for future ice climbing adventures as well.

Some examples of what you will learn include the following.

  • How to properly use an ice axe and crampons

  • How to progress from low angle terrain to steep ice

  • Belaying methods

  • Protective systems

  • and much more

Since this is a beginner level course, you do not need to have any past experience. All you need to arrive with is an eagerness to climb and a willingness to learn.

When it comes to ice climbing, you can’t do much better than the Hyalite canyon. And if you’re going to learn how to ice climb, why not learn in one of the best ice climbing spots in the entire United States.

So send us a request, and get started in what could be a life long enjoyment of the thrilling activity of ice climbing. You’ll be glad you did!

Great guides and great snow!



Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



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.



All perfect



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!
