Snowbank

Join us for a full day of rock climbing and rappelling. Encourage your team as you step together into a new level of trust. This site offers everything from twenty-foot slab climbs perfect for anyone unsure about heights to hundred-foot overhanging granite walls for those wanting to push themselves. The day will be a truly hands-on experience as members of the group belay each other on climbs as well as cheer everyone on from the base of the cliff. 

Snowbank is one of the most beautiful rock climbing sites in Idaho, with sub-alpine terrain and expansive ridgeline views. The rock site is easily accessible; the hiking approach is less than a quarter-mile. Sitting almost eight thousand feet above sea level, your group can experience comfortable climbing weather even when temperatures are over a hundred degrees in the Treasure Valley.

How will rock climbing help my group?

Rock climbing highlights individual challenges while being fully supported by a team. The pairing of the individual and team challenge simultaneously promotes affirmation and trust.

What gear is provided and who are my guides?

All technical gear is provided such as helmets, harness, shoes, and rope. Personal gear can be used with the approval of the senior guide. Our staff is trained to facilitate climbing and rappel experiences for various sized groups.

Is climbing hard?

Yes, but it’s so worth it! We will work with you to match appropriate climbs to your groups’ skill level. Everyone will climb with ropes and protective gear.

What if I’m afraid of heights?

It doesn’t matter if you reach the top of the climb or take a single step off the ground. The point of climbing is to step into the challenge at whatever level you are at.

What if I don’t know how to rock climb?

We would love to have you. Our guides are trained to help beginners grasp the basic concepts of climbing and rope management.

Our staff will equip and provide the essentials for your experience (e.g. gear, food, equipment, training, insurance) and will work with your group leader for programming and other logistical needs. In addition, our staff will provide the technical and professional skills needed to provide a safe and life-changing adventure.

Our goal is to assist you in providing a memorable experience for your group that has the opportunity to be life-transforming. Whether you are trying to create unity in your church youth group or build community in your school, group home, or youth-related organization—we are with you!

Let’s adventure together!
