“Intro to Ice Climbing”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

My friend and I recently took the intro to ice climbing through Mountain Skills Academy. Mountain Skills Academy is the only guide owned guiding / mountain skills development company in the Bow Valley. That being said the pride of ownership was very apparent. The guide we had for the weekend was Eric the owner. From start to finish both days were extremely positive with Eric always keeping things fun / safe with a positive mental attitude.
The course was very informative and by the end of the weekend we were both very comfortable executing all of the skills we had learned over the weekend.
Lots of laughs were had by all and we will definitely go with Mountain skills academy for our next mountain skills course! Thanks Again MSA!

“Avalanche safety course 2”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Phil was an amazing guide, who really got us making our own safety decisions so we would be ready to lead for our own adventures. I learned so much crucial knowledge and it was presented in a way that allowed me to remember all of it!

“Great!.....Very useful, efficient, and fun.....highly recommended”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

I have taken a few rock/ice courses with the academy. All the guides are very knowledgeable, good teachers, patient and goal oriented based on the group/individual.

Eric Dumerac (owner/guide) is a very accomplished all around mountaineer. He has setup numerous rock/alpine/mixed/ice routes in the Rockies including the hardest ice route in Canada (Right of passage). He is simply a great teacher/guide in addition to being a very talented climber.

Highly recommended.
