Ice climbing is both an exhilarating sport, and great preparation for alpine adventures. Our year-round Mount Baker Ice Climbing program is perfect for beginners looking to learn the basics. Modern equipment makes ice climbing achievable but requires specialized techniques. Guests can expect to learn fundamentals of axe placement, footwork, movement, and efficiency. If time allows, we’ll cover ice anchors as well.

Our instructors are all competent ice climbers who are eager to share their comprehensive knowledge and passion for the sport. Begin your ice climbing education with Baker Mountain Guides and access a world of alpine possibilities!
