The Ice Climbing Course of FromCoastToMountains is a great way to learn the skills and technics of ice climbing. We do the course in the field, in glaciers close to our office, in mulans further up the glacier, in frozen waterfalls close by the road or further up the valley, and even in ice caves if the conditions are good there. Bottom line, we can always find ice for sure, and while we prefer to climb in waterfall ice when possible, we will always be able to climb in steep glacier ice even if the winter is mild.

The course takes two days, but in some cases extra days for more advanced climbing can be booked. On day one we would start with the basics in an easy place in the glacier and get some climbing done also to see what needs to be covered the next day. On day two we would go to frozen waterfalls if they are in conditions, or we would go to bigger places in glaciers, or in ice caves if conditions are good there.

We also offer the shorter Ice Climbing Tour this winter where we practice ice climbing right outside the beautiful Sapphire Ice Cave.
