Ice Climbing

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.

Testimonials For ISM

Brilliant!! I was a walker at the start of the week. By the end had been on glaciers and climbed a 4000m peak!! It was a wonderful, wonderful, experience which i will never forget. It was excellent value for money and I hope to be joining you for years to come.

Our three guides were all excellent: Thomas, Phil and Paulo. I can't speak highly enough of them. They were all good company and superb climbers, and patient with us all.
