Ice climbing is an exciting and challenging skill to learn. If you’re just starting out, you may be tempted to turn to your friends as teachers. While you may know some skilled ice climbers, there are a number of benefits of hiring a professional guide instead. Here are five reasons to hire a Banff ice climbing guide.
1. Undivided Attention During Private Ice Climbing
Exploring with your friends is a lot of fun, but often they give you a few tips, then are anxious to start climbing themselves. This leaves you waiting around. With a guide, you have undivided attention so you can concentrate on developing the skills you need for Banff adventures.
2. Ice Climbing Courses Teach You All the Skills
No matter how many times your friends have gone ice climbing, they still don’t have the training and certification of a professional guide. Ice climbing courses give you access to a vast collection of expert knowledge.

4. A Banff Ice Climbing Guide Creates an Environment for Learning
A guide is there to help you and loves teaching people new skills. They have plenty of patience to work with you through difficult areas and are happy to answer all your questions during private ice climbing.
5. Tailored Learning with a Guide
