VIA FERRATA

Get Vertical at the most exhilarating Via Ferrata in Western Canada!

Experienced and apprentice climbers alike will tackle Terminator Peak’s north face & venture through 2 custom courses and 1 suspension bridge. People don’t come to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort to tackle the same old thing. They come for the differences, and we have plenty.

Step out of your comfort zone and experience first-hand exposure in a safe environment, while soaking in the majestic views of the Rockies and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. Our experienced and friendly guides will cater to your level ensuring a high level of professionalism, whether you are a lead climber or a never-ever in search of an adrenaline fix.

7 days a week from June 25 to August 28

Bolted on the rock face of Terminator 1, highly visible from the Gondola Eagle Express, these iconic climbing routes are available all summer long. Your Via Ferrata Adventure is all inclusive and will grant you access to our award-winning Eagle’s Eye Restaurant, perched at 7,700 feet.
