Mount Assiniboine Ascent - 3 & 4 Day Programs


Mount Assiniboine. Often regarded as The Matterhorn of the Candian Rockies. This is one of the most classic ascents in Western Canada, and easily accessible from our base in Canmore. Although there is the option to hike in to the area, we strongly encourage our guests to approach via helicopter from Canmore. By doing so, we will arrive well rested at the Hind Hut and ready for a summit attempt the following day.


We offer 4 day ascent programs (extra days are possible to book). Join us this summer for this classic ascent here in our home range of the Canadian Rockies.


Helicopter access, accomodation and a complete meal program are included as well as Guiding Services in our programs. Please note: Helicopter Access to the area is only available Friday, Sunday and Wednesday.

Is This Trip For You?

This trip requires a solid level of aerobic fitness. The climbing is never overly difficult, and has short sections of technical rock climbing to 5.6. The exposure on the upper mountain is substantial and something to be prepared for. Our guests should expect a full day in the mountains and it is common to be on the move for 10+ hours. 



What's Included


Pricing includes Guiding Services, Out-trip meals, Helicopter Service Return from Mount Assiniboine Lodge, and a reservation for our stay at the R.C.Hind Hut. It also includes the use of our new, technical equipment excluding mountaineering boots which you will need to provide on your own. The trip does not include accommodation prior to, or after the program.
