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.
Testimonials For ISM
Thanks for organising an excellent week. The course format, accommodation and set up was perfect. The guide was outstanding and gave us a full week of constructive tuition. I was able to put his training into practice the following week when I met up with a friend and did the Cosmiques Arrete.

Classic AlpinISM (Instructional Course)
This was a fantastic trip. Paolo was excellent. The accommodation great. All helped along by wall to wall sunshine, stunning arctic scenery and some superb snow, so no problems as far as I'm concerned.
