Rock & Ice Climbing

Dynamic Variation:

In winter, reach dizzying new heights with help from the Club d'escalade de Saint-Boniface, the provincial chapter of the Alpine Club of Canada, which got its start in Winnipeg back in 1906. Members maintain a 20-metre ice-climbing wall in St. Boniface; the free-standing structure affords spectacular views of the Red River and downtown Winnipeg, and even non-climbers can get in on the action every February at the club's annual Festiglace, an ice-climbing contest held as part of Festival du Voyageur.
