Experience the thrill of climbing a classic multi-pitch waterfall in Jasper National Park! Your local guide will ensure your private outing is safe and fun. Climbs range in difficulty from easy to extreme.
Many of Jasper’s guests enjoy the great skiing at Marmot Basin, yet few venture into the magic of the backcountry. If you are curious as to what gems lie hidden in the wilderness, let us show you a few of our favourites.
Level 1 is an introduction to traveling in glaciated terrain and as a review of the latest equipment and travel strategies as per international standards.
Level 2 is for those with a solid foundation of basic knots and ropework. We’ll progress into belayed climbing, lowering, rappelling and more advanced anchor construction as well as further instruction on weather analysis and coaching on alpine movement skills.
The Alpine Training Ascent is offered as an add-on to the the Alpine Skills training program.
Level 1: Climb a classic alpine objective that is suitable for a first alpine climb or a great place to practice new skills. Prerequisite Glacier Travel and Crevasse Rescue level 1
Level 2: Apply the skills from the Glacier Travel 2 and Crevasse Rescue 2 training by climbing a classic alpine objective that is suitable for an intermediate alpine climb involving more advanced ropework and movement skills.
Our Junior Mountaineer Club is designed for kids ages 7 – 11. All equipment is provided and students learn the important fundamentals of safety, equipment, belaying, rappelling, and of course – climbing!
2018 dates are May 6 and June 10.
