Via Ferrata means “Iron Way” in Italian. It’s basically a re-bar ladder drilled into a cliff and apparently they’re popular in Europe. Last month the Whistler Alpine Guides Bureau invited me and a few friends up to do the Via Ferrata tour on Whistler Mountain. It was incredible. I’ve been rock climbing in this area since I was a teenager so I didn’t expect to be so blown away but this 4-hour tour really lived up to the hype. It’s easy and safe but you still get to experience the feeling of being on the rock with some empty space beneath you. This is definitely one of the coolest tours in Whistler.
