Montana Ice - Introduction to Ice

Montana Ice - Introduction to Ice

Montana's Hyalite Canyon is one of the premier ice climbing destinations in the United States, with countless world-class ice cliffs.

RMI has partnered with Montana Alpine Guides to offer Introduction to Ice Climbing courses and private guiding in Hyalite Canyon. These are the perfect programs to broaden general mountaineering skills and prepare for technical climbing on the likes of Denali, Chopicalqui, and the North Ridge of Mt. Baker.

This two-day course is designed to develop solid ice climbing fundamentals, including ice climbing technique, safety, and the skills to enjoy the wonderful sport of ice climbing and continue to progress. The Intro to Ice Climbing course takes place in Hyalite Canyon, just outside of Bozeman, Montana.

Montana Alpine Guides are some of the most experienced ice guides in the Rockies, and their staff includes RMI Guides Adam Knoff and Matias Francis.
