Re: [coastal_climber] How do you REALLY get into alpinism?
Report this Post
Canmore is decent. Locals freindly enough and easy to meet folks on the many easy accesed waterfalls and Hafner or other dry tools areas.
You can get really good at water ice and hard mixed. Alpinism? Not so much as the weather is generally terrible in the mtns and access is tough year around.
Alpinism is in Canada during winter is hard and generally dangerious because of the snow pack. Much easier in every respect in Cham imo. But it is all snow, weather and conditon dependant. The trams just make is easier to get on and off things.
