Description

Ice climbing in winter is an ephemeral luxury. Every winter the ice returns, slowly thickens, stabilizes and creates a new climbing wall. Those who have already practiced ice climbing know it from the first day: we come back to ice climbing, as snow comes back in winter!

But if you’ve never tried it before, you may imagine a terrifying activity, during which you are so cold that it is impossible to enjoy yourself. This 1-day ice climbing course will show you how wrong you are! We will enjoy a fun and exciting day on the ice, without fear and without cold!

You need to be in good physical condition to take this course and some rock climbing experience is definitely helpful. However, no technical skills are required.

Additionally, a maximum of 4 people can take this course together. Bear in mind that this ice climbing course is even suitable for children over 12 years old. So come as a family and enjoy an unforgettable day together!

What are the best ice climbing spots in the Hautes Alpes? We have several options to choose from: Le Vallon du Fournel, Vallouise/Pelvoux, Freissinières vallée and, finally, Ceillac. We will choose our destination depending on ice conditions.

A half-day option is also possible. See the “Extra information” section for more info.

Come from December to March to practice ice climbing in the Hautes Alps. So contact me and we’ll start planning for a fun day on the ice!
