Our festival was founded with education and instruction in mind. For the past 23 years we have worked to provide world-class instruction from guides and athletes from around the world. In an effort to expand our clinic offerings we have created three learning tracks for our clinics:
The Mountain Track is set up to teach general mountain skills. We believe there are skill sets that are important to mountaineers, backcountry skiers, winter hikers, and others which we can teach as part of our festival and focus on efficiency, safety, and preparedness.
Ice climbing is the foundation of our festival and a foundational part of what makes Hyalite Canyon so special. We strive to make the sport easier to learn and offer a variety of clinics for beginners, intermediate climbers and advanced climbers.
Mixed climbing is a natural progression for many climbers who are looking to climb larger routes in the mountains as well as the incredible dry and mixed climbs in Hyalite. With the progression made in this side of the sport we have expanded our offerings from the Mixed Masters clinic into 3 different clinics which offer beginner, intermediate, and a special Mixed Projecting clinic for more advanced climbers.
