About the trip

Imagine learning to climb a mountain face amidst the crisp, quiet winter air. On this Discover Outdoors day trip, you'll join other adventurous city dwellers to ice climb a vertical ice flow with guidance from experts while experiencing the beauty of nature at its purest.

After leaving the city, we'll navigate our way to a winter wonderland and learn the basics of ice climbing. Harnessed and guided by pros, we'll scale icefalls, frozen waterfalls, cliffs and rock slabs as we ascend to a wintry perch and take in our exhilarating surroundings. Learn new climbing skills in the midst of snow drifts and beautiful hanging icicles as you make new friends and let your senses explore.

We will spend approximately 5-6 hours learning, climbing and exploring. You need no experience and won't believe the workout. By the day's end, you will have learned new skills, used pro equipment and gear, strengthened your climbing techniques, and seen some of the areas most beautiful sights.

This trip is appropriate for beginners and avid climbers as we will have a number of courses and climbing guides to coach each ability level.
