Here are some examples of the feedback we received online and in print. Outdoor Skills And Thrills has been featured a number of times in The Chronicle Journal, Gripped Climbing Magazine, CBC Radio, Thunder Bay Tourism, and a variety of others! Aric’s goal is to provide the absolute best experience possible for everyone who joins and is confident you will be just as happy as these folks:


“It was definitely one of the best days of my life! I highly recommend the course. Aric was amazing at coaching you through everything. He pushed you when you needed it and helped you get past your fears and crush it. I can’t wait to go back!! The challenge was terrifyingly AMAZING in the best way possible. THANK YOU!”

Outdoor Skills And Thrills’ first appearance in The Chronicle Journal 
DSC_0095-001  Emma: “For a first-time climber, the experience of scaling the face of untouched rock is thrilling: The touch of warm rock, the smell of lush forest, the sounds of encouraging cheers from climbers below, the sight of the next ledge only inches out of reach, and the taste of chalk blowing off your hands in the cool breeze.”


“Such awesome days out on some of the best rock around! Really chilled out atmosphere with plenty of opportunity to challenge to the max, or time to sit back and take it all in. Aric everything you’d want in a climbing guide – patient, knowledgeable, excited about the area and a helluva lot of fun to hang with (ha! Quite literally). I’d imagine he’d have some pretty sweet places to share for those with advanced skills, as well as provides excellent intro sessions for those newer to the sport. Try it out!!!”

“Spent a day learning how to ice climb recently with a group of friends and had an absolutely amazing time from start to finish. Aric is a fantastic guide and teacher – experienced, safe, and uber patient! And it’s obvious he truly cares about simply getting people outside and exposed to the beautiful surroundings right in our backyard. Can’t wait until the next adventure… :)”
