Ice Climbing Skills (Instructional Course)
Level 1: Instructional Courses
Courses run by expert ice climbers with a wealth of experience
ISM Ice Climbing courses are run by professionals who are expert ice climbers, and have a wealth of experience from around the world.
The Alps has always provided great winter climbing conditions with typically low and stable temperatures forming some amazing ice. Conditions are generally at their best during January and February. The icefalls in the Canadian Rockies come into their own during March, when the weather is slightly warmer and the days longer.

Mont Blanc Ascent
“What an incredible week learning the basics of Mountaineering. The course is perfectly balanced between summiting high alpine peaks and learning rope, climbing and glacier skills.
Good mixture of progressive instruction and learning, climbing and guiding. We climbed some very good mountains from good huts and made the best of the mixed weather conditions. The course also used a range of situations and locations to cover a wide range of skills and techniques.
