Trip and Interruption Insurance
It is highly recommended to purchase medical insurance (if applicable) and traveler’s trip interruption insurance to cover travel costs and trip costs in the event you have to cancel your trip due to personal illness or injury, family emergency or other personal conflicts. If climbing within Canadian National Parks, the purchase of a park pass is required and this also acts as mountain rescue insurance if needed.
Mountain Weather & Conditions
Part of the mountain experience is dealing with changing weather and conditions. Alpine Air Adventures ensures its guides are continually monitoring current and forecasted weather and conditions. Occasionally a program will require changes due to unfavorable weather conditions and or other circumstances, which may result in alternate trip locations and objectives. Be prepared for a plan B option.
All Alpine Air Adventure guides are certified by the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides and or the International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations and the Canadian Avalanche Association. With daily guides meetings, snowpack and mountain conditions analysis is discussed to better suit the guests objectives and to ensure the highest level of safety and client care. Our guides are here to serve you and show you an unforgettable experience!
