Unforgettable experience in the most beautiful mountain settings.

Ice climbing course through Yamnuska exceeded my expectations. The instruction was awesome. The setting was breathtaking. There was no shortage of adrenalin rush.

The half-day ice-climbing session was easily one of THE best elements of my trip to Banff this week. Jesse is not only incredibly experienced and friendly, but also made us feel in very safe hands. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to others - our only regret is not booking in for a whole day! Thanks again to the great... More

I hired a guide from Yamnuska for a day of ice climbing. Yamnuska guides know the best places to climb and are fully up to date on conditions in various ice climbing areas. The climb was tailored to my experience and abilities. Yamnuska provides a complete list of the gear you need as well they provide the group gear and... More

AST 1 Course- Canmore/Bow Summit This was my first Yamnuska experience and I will be back for more. Be forewarned Yamnuska is expensive but I absolutely assure you, they are well worth it. Yamnsuka's guides and instructors are evidently some of the industries best and it was really evident both days of the AST course that was held Dec 6... More

Amazing course, worth every penny. Wish I would have done this 30 years ago. I came into this course with very little climbing experience and left with a confidence to tackle appropriate climbing objectives SAFELY. Our guide provided an outstanding experience starting with basics and progressing at the correct pace to higher levels of complexity. There was ample time to... More

This course was excellent. I recommend it to anyone who wants to try outdoor rock climbing. The guide gave clear instruction on the skills needed to climb safely and confidently and then allowed ample time for practicing the skills on crags in some beautiful settings including Lake Louise. Just the right mix of instruction and climbing practice. The optional third... More

This was an excellent trip even though we did not get to the Abbott Pass hut because of dangerous conditions. They lined up alternative accommodations and climbs quickly, and were extremely well organized. The guides did a completely fantastic job in everything they did, but the climb to the Neil Colgan hut and the climb of Mt Fay was especially... More

With very little indoor climbing experience I was a little nervous heading into this program. However, having done a few programs with Yamnuska in the past I was expecting to have a knowledgable and friendly guide to help me along, and I was NOT disappointed. Our guide made me feel safe at all times, provided good information and safety techniques,... More

It was a fantastically well organised trip: all the equipment provided by Yamnuska was great; the arrangements were fine, the food was really good and the guide was excellent. It was a beautiful place, with Assiniboine (the Canadian Matterhorn) at the end of the lake. We helicoptered in and out ,which was fantastic even if only a brief 10 mins... More
