Private Summer Guiding Banff and Canmore
Hello and welcome to the Canadian Rockies Mountain Guides website.
We are small independent guiding service that specializes in custom built trips in the mountains. We provide services for all mountain sports including rock climbing, via ferratta, alpinism and hiking.
What sets us apart is that we are a very small operation where you will dealing with one person through your initial contact right through to the day we are climbing or travelling together.
We are not a guide booking agency or a mountain school where your guide may have varying levels of certification and/or experience.
Your initial contact with us will be directly with an experienced professional mountain guide.
You are booking an experienced, fully certified, risk management specialist who lives and breathes the mountains.
Rock Climbing is one of the most rewarding physical problem solving activities in the mountains. We can teach you the technical skills you need to develop your own self sufficiency or accompany you on your chosen route(s).
The Canadian Rockies has literally hundreds if not thousands of rock climbs around the greater Bow Valley areas of Canmore, Banff and Lake Louise.
There is phenomenal early season rock climbing at the Skaha bluffs in the southern Okanagan as well as the sweeping coastal granite of Stawamus Chief in Squamish.
If you have an alpine climbing objective(s) we can facilitate your mountain goal(s). Alpine granite of the Bugaboos of the Purcell mountain group, high quality alpine quartzite of the Selkirk mountain group in the Roger's Pass.
There is a short list of ultra classic Canadian Rockies alpine climbs, please inquire and we can provide suggestions based on the time of the year and conditions to make your dreams reality and can plan a trip well suited to your needs and abilities which will make the most of your valuable time here in the mountains
In addition to private guiding, we have over 15 years of experience teaching rock climbing, mountaineering, glacier travel, crevasse rescue and rock rescue courses, please have a look at our Courses Page.
If the listed courses are not what you are looking for, we can personally tailor a custom made program by deﬁning your goals and achieving your objectives in a time frame that suits you or your group; in an appropriate environment conducive to success.
