Ice Climbing Winter Outdoor Activities

There are two types of travellers in the world: those who prefer ice in their campfire beverages and those who see ice and think, "I need to climb that." Alberta specializes in both, but the latter will probably get you more likes. Probably. • Good to know: Ice climbing is the sport of using specialized tools to scale frozen vertical surfaces. Beginner pitches are kind of like climbing a chilly ladder. • Try it: Sign up for a weekend ice-climbing course. The pros will take you from tying knots to getting vertical with an ice axe in less than two days. • Level up: Book a multi-day ice-climbing trip to scale some of the best crags, glaciers, icefalls and icewalls on the planet. Enough said.
