About
A day of swinging axes and kicking crampons on beautiful blue ice! Whether you have years of ice climbing experience or have never climbed before this tour is for you! Beginners: First time climbers will be introduced to ice climbing at a smaller, easier wall. It’s a surprisingly simple activity that any moderately fit person can enjoy. Intermediate to Advanced: More experienced climbers will be guided up the finest ice climbs matching their ability, and all under the direct supervision of a professional ACMG guide. We also have *multi-pitch ice route and *multi-day ice trip options.

Epic Day Ice Climbing with our guide Eric & MSA
Feb. 2020
What an amazing experience, our guide Eric was so easy going and helpful. We were pretty nervous going in as we didn't have much experience, luckily it was just myself and my brother and nobody else besides our guide. It was a spectacular day and we made our way up to the peak and then boarded down the beautiful glacier to a breathtaking ice rock.

Eric showed us the basics and then let us have fun, we tried several different variations with the same rope so we were constantly challenged. I will definitely be back again!

Thanks!

Mountain skills Academy as a first rate group of professional instructors

This is my second year returning to work with mountain skills Academy and Eric

Eric took my children ice climbing for the day in the back country they had a phenomenal time and haven’t stopped talking about it yet

It should say a lot that I was willing to let Eric take my children into the back country

I trust Eric 100% even doing high risk adventure sports in remote environments

Every program we have done including helicopter operations has been professional safe and incredibly fun

I generally don’t leave reviews like this but if you’re wondering who do you use for these type of activities look no further

Eric was awesome and we had the best day. So much harder than I originally thought but this made it so much more worth it.
Thank you

We had the greatest time thanks to Eric!
Feb. 2020 • Couples
Eric was such an experienced tour guide. It was just my partner and I in the tour, so we had plenty of time to climb and perfect our techniques. Eric was very patient and helpful and we have learned so much! Will definitely recommend :)
