GSI shutting down

It is with regret that Gravsports Ice will be closing soon. Despite all of us here and many in the community being of the opinion that GSI is a better archiving system for information on ice climbing in the Canadian Rockies, this website will be shutting down.

Keeping the lights on and keeping conditions current no longer seems practical. We have tried making the forums more user friendly, and kept access to a vast array of beta and history contained on the website open to all. However low participation and increasing costs from both the website and hacker intrusions have lead us to this decision. Many thanks to Ian for past hosting costs. While the website will remain live for a short while you can expect it to disappear soon. We have talked of options to preserve the beta it contains however we offer no guarantees at this time.

We thank all our supporters, and everyone in the community for your past participation in GSI.
Will, Ian, and Grant.

  • Kananaskis Interpretive Canyon- pic attached

    Half dozen ice routes in the Kananaskis Interpretive Canyon Trail that form because of seeps from the huge pipeline that site 10m back from the cliff(Stay Away!) There's bulges, rambles, steep pillar, thin slab of ice and adaggar. Don't place bolts here or anchor off manmade stuff.

    Take Hwy#40 to Kananaskis Lakes Trail. Pass Smith-Dorien Junction, and about .5km past the Visitor's Centre, turn right as for 'Canyon'. Drive 2km(open in winter) and park at a telephone booth. Walk down into the campground. Walk past a kid's playground and pass campsites north 100m to wood boardwalk into the canyon. Beware of open water pools.


    WG Note---Looks like a good place to play. Photo taken some time last year, not current. Let's see if the photo attaches...
