Watch Clinic Teaser

Created specifically for the Arc'teryx Academy, we have created six complete online clinics built to educate students on how to take their mountain skills to the next level. From backcountry camping to moving fast in the alpine, we have teamed up with industry-leading ACMG guides, combined with our very own team of elite athletes, to share their knowledge. Learn at your own pace, in your own space, on your own schedule.

Land acknowledgement: Arc'teryx and Altus Guides acknowledge that we had the privilege of filming these clinics on the unceded, ancestral, and occupied, traditional lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Watuth), Stó:lō, Shíshálh (Sechelt) and Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nations of the Coast Salish peoples.

how it works

Each clinic is meticulously crafted based on our combined mountain experiences and training. The information is easily digestible, they are broken down into chapters, so you can learn at your own pace. Furthermore, each chapter consists of a series of recorded videos, followed with a quiz to further implant the key takeaways.

The clinics are $45 and run from 45min - 1.5hrs, and cover a full day’s course worth of content, all in an easy to comprehend and review format.
