No, but you must be in good health.
For snowshoeing, you must be able to do prolonged walks (four consecutive hours) in fairly rugged terrain, with uphill and downhill travel. No other special skills are required. See our snowshoeing page for more details.
Mountaineering is open to all those who have pre-registered. The type of mountaineering we do will depend on participant ability and footwear. See our mountaineering page for more details.
If participants are not able to meet activity requirements, they may be disqualified for safety reasons and the satisfaction of other passengers. If you have any questions about required skills, please see our activity pages or contact our office.
