Frequently Asked Questions

No, we offer almost exclusively beginner courses.

It takes place at Tremblant Resort, just a short walk from The Tremblant Activity Centre on a frozen waterfall.

As soon as you decide you want to come, the earlier the better. Reservations should be made a few days in advance.

Ice climbing is low intensity when you are belaying (supporting the climber), to high intensity when it’s your turn to climb. So you will need to dress in layers.

Wear snow pants because you will be in contact with the ice face. Occasionally there is water on the ice. The use of gaiters or old snow pants is recommended since you wear crampons for ice climbing which can tear pant ankles if you are not careful. You need to bring alpine ski boots if you don’t have any you will need to arrange rentals in advance. These can be rented at boutiques here in Tremblant but keep in mind that line-ups can be long, so plan accordingly. We provide un-insulated helmets. Tuques can be worn underneath. Please don’t wear a tuque with a huge pom-pom. It is recommended to bring sunglasses or goggles. Did we mention that YOU NEED TO BRING ALPINE SKI BOOTS?

See our What to Wear page for details.

Remember we lose a lot of body heat from our heads. It’s important to wear something on your head, like a tuque (that’s what Canadians call a knit or insulated cap!)

No, the climbing site is on private property, and for insurance reasons you must climb with a guide.

Yes, you can easily access the site to watch and photograph.
