Our family recently planned a Ski Vacation to Canmore for my Son and I to attend the AST 1 Course provided by Yamnuska Mountain Adventures.

This course far exceeded my expectations!

 The staff’s professionalism, knowledge and delivery not only made it enjoyable and memorable, but we learned essential life skills and an appreciation for the backcountry.


We had a fantastic day with Paul and Jacob in the backcountry! The practical exercises exposed us to the environment, while solidifying all the newly gained material.

Their expertise and demeanour made this such a fun and memorable day. My Son actually mentioned that this day was the highlight of our week long ski trip to The Rockies.

In the end, the experience motivated our Son to embark on his dream to ski the backcountry, albeit with the intent to join Yamnuska Mountain Adventures on their guided tours; and of course, I’m excited to join him:)

It was a bit of a refresher course for me as I was getting a bit rusty. So my review is based on at least 4 previous guided mountaineering training camps.
Everything was well planned. I received sufficient correspondence to arrival at the staging area totally prepared. Our guide Paul was amazing, worked hard from dawn to dusk with a bright smile on his face. No questions puzzled him and all of them were answered with confidence. I learned a few new tricks, as mountaineering practices evolve like everything around us. Modern techniques require less gear with the same safety and efficiency levels.
The food was varied and daily rations were well-planned and contrary to my hopes I didn’t loose a pound. The weather was favourable and we accomplished everything we planned. There was a lot of diverse mountain terrain to practice on, and we scaled a mountain a day. I brought my own gear and made a mistake, as the gear offered by Yamnuska was of the same quality and in a way better shape. That is not what I used to get in rentals before.

I recently completed a week-long Intro to Mountaineering course with Yamnuska. It was an excellent experience. The course is challenging, but not overwhelming. The course is well-taught and well-organized. Yes, the days can be long, but it was safe and thorough. Stories that will either last a lifetime or spurn further mountaineering adventures......give me a few more days to decide!

We did the ice climbing as a day tour, and we had a fantastic time! Our guide, Nick, was knowledgeable, helpful and very focused on safety. He safely guided us beginners into successfully climbing and feeling confident. Would highly recommend!

A group of us 40+ year old ladies decided we’d like to go on our very first backpacking adventure. Yamnuska was the best at accommodating our needs. They took a very personal approach with me in all communications and we ended up getting the very best guide. Amanda went above and beyond to ensure we had the best experience ever. I will be booking more adventures with Yamnuska and I strongly recommend you do too. Worth every penny.
