Via Ferrata means “iron road” in Italian and is a fixed route climb along a series of cables, ladders and bridges. Climbers are clipped in for safety, which means the system allows amateurs to experience the views and excitement normally reserved for hardcore climbers. Via Ferratas are a relatively new type of mountain adventure brought to Canada from Europe (the first was installed in Quebec in 2002). Our Via Ferrata will be located on the Terminator Peak’s north face – venture through two custom courses, the discovery route and the ascension rote. Both are available to never ever climbers or seasoned pros and vary in length from 2 to 4 hour tours, a suspension bridge crossing is included in both tours! The rock face of Terminator 1 is highly visible from the Gondola, be the envy of all riders as they watch you on this adrenaline filled rock climbing adventure.
