Ice Climbing, Banff + Jasper

See the Canada Guide ›
Banff + Jasper's insider take:

Combine Banff's plummeting rock walls and cold winter temperatures and the result is a series of frozen waterfalls—prime ice-climbing terrain. Yamnuska Mountain Adventures has certified guides who will give two-day classes for novices, or lead more experienced climbers up routes in Cougar Creek (near Canmore) and Cascade Mountain in Banff National Park (403-678-4164; They also rent and sell equipment, such as the pointy crampons that let you kick footholds into the giant Popsicles, as well as axes, ropes, and harnesses. See, ice is not just for cocktails anymore.
