How To Prepare For Your First Alpine Climbing Adventure

| Uncategorized | No Comments

Summer is an ideal time to plan an alpine trip. The beauty of the mountains is amazing, and you can’t wait to get out there and test your skills. But…

I recently went on a 5 day ski touring trip guided by Jeff and Jason (assistant guide). As a strong skier with limited backcountry experience Jeff and Jason were very knowledgeable and helpful with tips on technique and feedback on the mountains and terrain. It was a fantastic experience with days spent searching and skiing unforgettable powder runs. I highly recommend them and Alpine for any backcountry adventures.

Gordon Miskic

Just did the 'Weekend Warrior' trip to get a feel for ski touring. Both guides (Tamara and Jeff) passed us a ton of valuable info and it was exactly the type of intro to the backcountry I was hoping for. Furthermore, the views, terrain, and skiing were beyond my expectations. I'm already looking into doing another trip with AAA this season!

Darren Kroeker

I've taken crevasse rescue and avalanche safety training 2 with Alpine Air. Both courses were interesting, informative and fun. Jeff is a great teacher . You can feel comfortable asking him questions and he'll take you to some cool places in the Rockies.

Phillip Benson

Took my AST2 course with AAA this January/February. The experience was excellent, I learned so much about safe terrain and route selection, I would recommend these guys to anyone. They were very flexible about where and what areas we toured in, and helped our group make our own decisions without imposing on the decision making process.

Michael Snider

Jeff was a fantastic guide for our Family Day Asulkan weekend. Turned out there was a SPAW (Special Public Avalanche Warning) issued the same weekend. Since our group is newer to touring (within the last year), we were pretty thankful to have a highly experienced expert to show us around. We were headed up the headwall to Young's Peak, turned around and called it due to snow instability. Not only was he an excellent guide, but also a great addition to the group atmosphere. Thanks again AAA!

Melissa Bryant

Did a day hike last week, great experience. Well organised, really enjoyable.

Awesome teacher, very safe climber and guide. Learned a lot and had a great day with him on Mount Louis. Will always recommend him to friends.

Shaun Gair

Jeff Bullock took our group of six split boarders on the AST 2 before Christmas. We got some really great hands on experience touring around the Rogers Pass area and finished off with a day in the Kicking Horse back country. Jeff was extremely professional, informative, realistic, and patient. He is very knowledgeable and experienced in the outdoors. He answered all of our questions and gave us a lot of freedom to choose and explore various routes in the back country. He showed us how much fun the back country is but also instilled in us confidence in risk management while traveling through avalanche terrain. I highly recommend Jeff Bullock for any person for any course in the outdoors!

Sinead Murphy

Thanks again Jeff for a great adventure!

Kevin Dumba

I have been on multiple trips with Alpine Air Adventures and I am always impressed with the level of skill and decision making when it comes to safety in the mountains. I choose to go with Alpine Air Adventures because Jeff is very flexible and easy to book with. I am able to get a small custom trip and an experience I wouldn't get with a big operator. Whether its skiing or climbing big mountains, or rock and ice climbing AAA will give you a great experience in the hills!

Jeff Wynnychuk

Jeff is a down to earth, incredible person with the most amazing experience. Modest and personable, Jeff really knows what he's talking about. Adaptable to any group, he will encourage you to push yourself, and teach you the instincts to prevent being in a dangerous environment. Would recommend Jeff Bullock to everyone I know, thanks Jeff for the experience and knowledge.

Karine Daze

After 4 trips booked through Alpine Air Adventures I can honestly say I would recommend this guiding company to anyone. Jeff and the guides he enlists work closely with the guests to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. I hope to be in the mountains with Jeff in the future!

Michael Le Grice

After completing courses in crevasse rescue and ice climbing techniques with Jeff, I would recommend him to anyone interested in learning and enhancing their mountain skills. Jeff's skill and professionalism, attention to safety, and his willingness to adapt to your level of experience provided for an excellent learning environment for all. Thanks Jeff!

Lorne

I have done a number of trips with Jeff - an incredible guide. Highly recommend him to anyone.
