If you have training and/or experience in basic mountain skills and are looking to take it to the next level, join us on a three-day course in the spectacular Tantalus Range. A short helicopter trip from Squamish drops us in the amazing Serratus/Dione Col, the site of the ACC Jim Haberl Hut. The hut makes for a comfortable stay while we spend three intensive days learning skills and putting them to use on some of the many challenging objectives near the hut.

All Island Alpine Guides courses and trips take place in an outdoor, wilderness environment. This means that as a participant you will be encountering various risks, dangers and hazards some of which include avalanches, cornices, crevasses, cliffs, trees, creeks, rockfall, difficult travel conditions, weather, illness, equipment failure, wild animals, becoming lost as well as the possibility of mistakes being made by IAG guides and instructors. To participate in these activities you will be required to read and agree to our waiver as part of the registration process. You will also be required to sign the waiver at the start of the course or trip. In doing so you will waive or give up certain legal rights including the right to sue or to claim compensation following an accident.

What a great adventure! The whole experience was fantastic! Thanks for getting us to the top of Serratus. It’s nice after the fact to know you made it to the top, rather than just getting close. There are too many great photos to pick a few right now, so I have burned them all to a disc and will drop it in the mail today. Dale Combs, Advanced Mountain Skills Tantalus Range
