Beat the quarantine blues with an approachable winter adventure. Come with us for a scenic hike in the mountains to the top of a cliff with a view of a frozen waterfall, from there our technically trained staff will set up a rappel, and take you down to the ice so you can experience the icefalls from the best vantage points. Then make your way back to the trail head, and have an awesome hot lunch in the mountains provided by our staff. After lunch, make your way down to some of Lake Abraham’s most scenic locations to view the lake’s famous methane ice bubbles.

Enjoy a beautiful hike along the peaceful cline river, while taking in spectacular winter views of Mount Elliot and Mount Sentinel.

After being clipped into a harness, use a dual rope system to traverse over the 100ft deep canyon. Spend some time experiencing this unique activity, then make your way back to the trailhead for a hot, homemade lunch. After lunch take a walk down to the famous methane ice bubbles found on Abraham Lake.

Walking Distance - 5 km & 400m Elevation Gain
Are you looking for a fun adventure with hiking, climbing, and caving? Then our staff would love to take you. The day starts with an hour and a half hike in the trees, following a creek at points. Once you reach the mouth of the cave, climb 5 meters and then you are in the Shidoobee cave. Once in the cave, staff will lead the way pointing out cool things in the cave. Then make your way out the same way you came in, rappel down and make your way back to the vehicle. We will provide you with all the equipment needed and a lunch.
INTRO TO ICE CLIMBING

Want to get an introduction to ice climbing? Come spend a weekend learning at our on-site ice tower. We will set you up with all the gear you need, and help you learn the basics. Once the day is over enjoy a hot meal and get rested in our cozy cabins. Get up the next morning and head back to the ice tower for more climbing mileage and instruction. Our wilderness location is the perfect place to enjoy nature, and learn a new sport.
