The best ice climbing in the World is in the Banff National Park area. Waterfall ice climbing is an unbelievably exhilarating sport and perfect for beginners, experts, families and individuals alike. Experience this fun and active sport under the guidance and instruction of professionally certified guides.
Unless otherwise specified you will meet at the Yamnuska office at 200, 50 Lincoln Park, Canmore. The meeting time will be set when you make your booking. Generally half day programs begin at 7:30am and 12:00pm.
Transportation is not included but may be available on certain days. Clients generally provide transportation for the guide. If there is a vehicle available, Yamnuska can provide transportation for a pick-up in Banff ($75) or Canmore ($50) with additional fuel surcharges being added on for climbing locations anywhere other than the “Junkyards” in Canmore.
For insurance reasons guides cannot transport clients. It is recommended you rent a car while in the area. If a guide has to drive beyond Canmore to meet you for the climb additional fuel charges apply.
There are several great ice climbing locations that can be readily accessed for daily lessons or trips from our office in Canmore, Alberta Canada. They include:
Grassi Lakes: "The Junkyards" 10 minutes drive from Canmore followed by a 20 minute walk. A great spot for first time ice climbers and those wishing to brush up on skills.
King Creek: 40 minute drive from Canmore in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park. Good beginner location for a full-day of climbing with some challenging short climbs to finish on.
Johnston Canyon: 20 minutes drive west of Banff. Good for steep climbing practice.
Haffner Creek: 40 minutes drive west of Banff. Excellent variety of steeper climbs and mixed climbs.
