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!!
Great day of touring in the amazing surroundings around Lake Louise - the vue and silky powder snow were worth the effort of climbing!
I had such a great experience skiing backcountry for the first time! Jeff was an amazing guide and really helped us learn how to use backcountry equipment and avalanche gear. My only concern was that we were forced to change the date of our trip quite last minute and we were not given much information about the trip until only 1-2 days in advance. However, the trip itself was incredible! Thank you for such an amazing experience!
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.
Really enjoyed our time with our guide, Troy. 5/5 Experience! Highly recommend.
My guide was Christian from the same company (vs Jeff). I was thrilled with the service, friendliness, knowledge, and professionalism. We went to Sunshine Slab near Banff to sport climb for a half day. We managed to get a lot of memorable climbs in a short amount of time. I would gladly use these guys again.
Jeff was so kind to the kids, he encouraged and motivated our 12 y/o eldest, and was tolerant and patient with our 9 y/o young one. Extremely recommended for families. We had much fun on the Banff cliffs.
