We had a fantastic day with Alpine Guides! Josh was knowledgeable, friendly and adept at guiding a group with varied skill levels and speed. The course itself is stunning, offering the best Whistler valley views. Don't be intimidated by the idea of swinging an icepick and scaling vertical rock walls - the course has been designed for all abilities and... More

We had our first via ferrata experience in July this year and it was awesome. We don't have any rock climbing experience before but this is totally achievable. Our guide was great and the glacier/mountain view is just stunning and breathtaking!!!

Our girls picked this so our family of four did the climb. What an amazing experience. Our guide Rupert was beyond helpful and made mom & dad confident that we could make it up. Awesome climb, beautiful views, challenging yes but the reward of standing on top of the hill was worth everything. BTW if you are scared of heights... More

Wow. My husband and I did the Via Ferrata and it was simply amazing. I was so scared the whole time, but our guide (Rupert) was so patient and helpful. For me, it was way more a mental challenge than a physical one; my husband is not afraid of heights at all and it was a walk in the park... More

My girlfriend and I booked the Glacier Hike on Whistler Mountain and was greeted by Josh our guide. He was very informative and explained thoroughly how to hike through the snow and get to the top of the mountain with ease. He also provided us with information on the glacier. It was our first time climbing a snow capped mountain... More

Decided to take a couple days off work and join some friends for a last minute slackcountry day(s) at Whistler. Called Whistler Alpine about renting a splitboard and associated gear and they were super friendly and helpful. Showed up the next day at 8am and everything was ready. Checked all the gear and it looked great. They briefly showed me... More
