Welcome to alpineguide.ca the home of James Blench Alpine Services.

I offer custom guided adventures in mountaineering, ski touring, rock and ice climbing. While home base is the Canadian Rockies near Banff, trips range from rock climbing in the Bugaboos to skiing the Haute Route in Europe.

Mountaineering is my passion and for thirty five years I have had a love affair with the Rockies. It is a privilege to share adventures in wild places with the wonderful people that use my services.

Please have a tour of the site. See if my services and approach will work for you. I pride myself on working collaboratively with my guests.

Together we will design an adventure that fits your style, your pace and your schedule! See you in the hills!
