And on this 2 day intermediate to advanced level course, we would like to help you refine the skills you already have, while also helping you develop new ones. And we would like to do that on the ice walls of the breathtaking Hyalite canyon in Montana, USA.

In the beginning of the course, we will conduct a review of the skills you already possess. A few examples include knots, harnesses and belays, ice screw placement, how to properly read ice and more. This is important because it will let us know what skills you are proficient in and what skills need some improvement. After that, we will proceed to instruct you on new techniques. And because this course takes place at the Hyalite canyon, you will have ample opportunity to put what you have learned into practice on the ice.

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.

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!
