Ice Climbing:
Whether you are a first time ice climber or would like to learn a particular set of skills, Whitefish Vertical Adventures will guide you through the fun challenge of climbing a wide range of ice features. We’re here to take you wherever your ice climbing aspirations may lie.

Lift Accessed Backcountry Skiing
Our guided backcountry ski and splitboard tours are for experienced skiers looking to venture into avalanche terrain. We will be skiing out of the resort boundary at Whitefish Mountain Resort and using ski lifts for access. Skiers and riders are expected to bring their own touring gear, avalanche safety equipment and have the knowledge to use it. A Whitefish Mountain Resort lift ticket or season pass is required.
