Participant Information

This comprehensive 2-day glacier and rescue course is a gold standard of the industry for mountaineers and alpine climbers. Day 1 will focus on "dry land" rope skills including haul systems and ascending a rope, while Day 2 will be in the field on Whistler or Blackcomb (quick access to maximize learning time) where we put all the skills together in a real mountain environment. The curriculum has been customized just for BCMC members. 

This course pairs perfectly with Intro to Mountaineering! Consider signing up for both for the full suite of mountain skills.

This course is taught by Mountain Skills Academy & Adventures by a professional ACMG certified guide. MSAA is offering a special price for BCMC members of $250 + GST (regular price for non-members: $399 + GST). You will also need to purchase a Whistler Blackcomb lift ticket for Day 2 if you do not have a season's pass. You can purchase a 1-day lift ticket here (purchase in advance for cheapest price, $58).
