      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Where-to in late March?

Recommended Posts

Wanted to plan something for spring break in late March and would really like to ice climb. Wondering if anything in Hyalite or Canmore is still in by that time? Jasper? Should I just go alpine climbing instead?

I have gone up to banff in mid march and been ok. Not near Canmore but farther north on the ice fields parkway. Murchison is pretty cold all winter. Maybe it would be pleasant in late march. Think n facing and higher elevation and it could work out for you.

 

But then two weeks could make all the difference between ice being fun and being in a heap on the ground.

Canadian Rockies is usually pretty solid that time of year. Had one of my best trips up there in late March (spring break as well). Things are usually fat and the temps moderate. You can definitely get skunked by the avy conditions but there should still be some protected stuff to keep you busy.
