We arrived in the northern Alps during one of the biggest snowstorms of the season, and had to change our itinerary for safety reasons. Our guides, Jesse and Grant, were able to plan an entirely new trip in the southern Alps within the span of a few hours, and it worked out beautifully. Our guides challenged us, kept us safe,...

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

My boyfriend and I took our Rock Transition course through Yamnuska in the summer of 2013. This company far exceeded my expectations and I came out feeling so much better about my transition to outdoor rock climbing! There was a slight delay on our first day of the course, and the owner personally apologized to our group and gave each... More

My friends and I took the AST1 course through Yamnuska Mountain Adventures this last weekend in Calgary/Bow Valley, and we were SO impressed with the whole experience. The course as a whole is extremely well done- content, structure, and presentation style. We really feel like we left with a great base to build some safe back country skills up from.... More

My family loves adventuring in the backcountry and often goes with Yamnuska guides. They are invariably professional, knowledgeable, personable and passionate about the mountains and sharing outdoor experiences with their guests. I always learn a lot, feel like an active participant in the whole process and appreciate the focus on safety. I've done a number of trips (Wapta Icefields, Mt.... More

I recently got an itch to try backcountry skiing and convinced my dad to join me. Lots of internet research eventually led us to Yamnuska. I contacted them with our goals -- a week of backcountry skiing with a guide, with an emphasis on learning how to be safe so that we could go on my own trips in the... More

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 recently took an AST Level 1 course through Yam, and it completely exceeded my expectations! The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and personable, and made the whole experience really enjoyable. I took the course to start matching up my knowledge to my riding and it was well worth it. There was so many tidbits of information that I picked up... 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
