Just spent and excellent afternoon with Equinox climbing the towers at Mt. Sima, Whitehorse. We were three kids ages 10, 12, and 15. Adults had a hoot watching, this time. Kids were all busy doing something for the whole two hours. A great introduction to ice climbing and ziplining!

If you're a climber and have always wanted to try climbing a frozen waterfall, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE! Chris, owner/guide, picked me up in downtown Whitehorse early in the morning with shoes to fit for the full-day of climbing. We then headed down to Carcross to pick up a guide from my previous trip (Boreal Kennels -- check them out as well!!) and off to our first adventuring spot. This was our "warm up spot" but still a challenge. We took a break for lunch in Carcross and made our way out to White Mountain for another awesome climb up a waterfall that was between 30-50 feet. A few things to note: 1. Chris runs several camps for kids and you can tell that he is GREAT with kids. 2. You are safe. You are 100000000% safe in his hands. There have been many times I climbed with a terrible belayer and was terrified for my life. With Chris, not a chance. I slipped countless times and I didn't drop more than an inch (maybe I did but it never, ever felt like it). 3. He will help you, encourage you, and challenge you. And it's exciting. Do this trip. I mean it. You won't regret it -- even if it's -30 degrees, it's worth it.

We spent 3 hours ice climbing. First time for all of us. Equinox team is very professional and friendly. We spent a very good time climbing with them and learning about their passion. I would go back again for sure!

I first climbed with Equinox three years ago when I signed up for a private Intro to Ice Climbing class at the ice tower as something fun to do on a Yukon holiday. I've returned each winter since, bringing friends to climb the ice towers and hiring Chris as a private guide for back country ice climbing. They offer great instruction for kids and adults and there are several beautiful local ice climbing areas for day trips. They have rental equipment available.

We had the pleasure to take part in the Equinox ice wall climb and zip line excursion and it was one of our best experiences while visiting Whitehorse. They wall is right next to the Takhini Hot Springs. Our guide that day was Chris who is the owner and he was amazing. Very helpful and extremely friendly. We felt safe in everything we did. The ice wall climb can be challenging but Chris sets you up for success. In between climbs he had warm tea for us to enjoy as we relaxed. He was very informative about not only ice wall climbing but with any other questions we had about the area. After we were done we went down the zip line across the frozen lake. The view over the lake is pretty amazing and when you zip line down it you get a great rush. Again this was a great part of our trip and we felt like we did something that we would be able to do few other places. Highly Recommended!
