Our Alpine Mountains

We take our alpine climbers on one of five different spectacular mountains.

Mount Athabasca

AA Col III Or Silver Horn III

Also known as the Athabasca – Andromeda Col, this is a classic mountaineering objective in the Canadian Rockies. It is the safest route to ascend up the mountain and reach its towering summit above the Columbia Ice Fields.

While working our way up the AA Col route, we will travel over moraines, glaciers, steep snow slopes and an amazing summit ridge with views right down the North Face of Mount Athabasca.

Mount Pevril

The North East Ridge on Mount Pevril is something you have to experience for your self. A beautiful hike up alongside Portal creek will give you a surreal feeling as your objective (Mount Pevril) towers over you on the approach.

There is a reason they call this mountain the Matterhorn of Jasper. When on the climb, you will be surrounded with pink and red Rockies quartzite and just when you think this climb can’t get any better, you get the picture perfect alpine summit.
