60 Foot Ice Climbing Tower
Check out Big White’s newest activity- our 60ft Ice Tower! The structure is built with 4 telephone poles cross braced together then flooded with water which freezes into 3 ft of thick blue ice. There is a beginner side and three other sides for more advanced climbers or anyone who is looking for a challenge with a choice of 19 different routes to get to the top. This is an activity for all fitness levels and can satisfy anyone with an appetite for adventure!
The Ice Tower is located in the Happy Valley Adventure Park, where you can test your skills on the ice or watch others as they attempt to reach the top. So far we've had as young as 7yrs all the way to 75yrs complete a climb! Your climb will be hosted by Jim, an AMGA (American Mountain Guides Association) Certified Guide. Please arrive 10 minutes before your climb. We recommend you wear layers and boots, crampons & ice tools are supplied so everyone can give it a try!
