A True BC Experience

Have you ever dreamed of hiking on a glacier? Be introduced to basic mountaineering? Reppel next to the 3rd largest waterfall in BC? Mountain Skills Academy offers you a way to start collecting memories and drink in the wild mountain air.


Available Tours: 

Shannon Falls Rappelling Adventure: This guided adventure starts with a hike to the top of the waterfall, where you will take in stunning views of Howe Sound. After a quick water break, your guide will prepare for your “action-hero-like descent.” Rappelling 8 pitches down a cliff face next to a gushing waterfall, you’ll want to bring your camera! This is not for the faint of heart.

Sky Walk: Take a walk atop Whistler. During this tour, you will wear a harness and helmet while walking on the edge of a cliff… don’t worry, though! Your professional guide is there is ensure your safety. This tour can take up to 2 hours.

Glacier Glissading: Hike a 14,000-year-old glacier and then glide down, all while enjoying alpine vistas.

Whistler Peak Challenge: Experience Whistler a whole new way and get into the alpine! This is roughly a 4-hour challenge, and no previous experience is needed.
