Top Rope Ice Course

From: $215.00

Ice climbing is a sport that has greatly evolved over the past two decades. As a result of the great advancements in the tools and equipment, ice climbing has become a fun and accessible sport for people of all abilities.  Our Full Day Top Rope Ice Climbing Course will teach you the next level from a basic course to get you going with ice climbing techniques while under the watchful eye of your experience guide.

You can find many hidden ice flows found in the various canyons during the winter months. Not only are you able to enjoy the ice, but you get to experience these frozen canyons. As you move through them you’ll explore the successive ice flows that lay around each twisting corner. These surrounding ice canyons make a great day for all levels. For our beginner single pitch days, we teach the basic skills and techniques needed for a fun and knowledgeable day on the ice. Our ice courses take place in January and February.

We want to accommodate you, so all our courses are private. As a result, start times can be adjusted around your travel plans and you will never be grouped with others unless requested. Check the gear link to see what we will provide and what we ask the client to provide.

Note: As directed by the Superintendent, paid guiding for canyoneering and climbing trips is not permitted within Zion National Park. All trips and courses are done outside of the park in beautiful locations. Details will be given when you call to book your course or trip.

Price Per Person/Per Day.  This pricing is for 2 & 3 day trips.

Note: We do offer 1 day courses.  See our climbing trip full day link for pricing.
