ONE SPOT FREED ITSELF SO IF INTERESTED PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION ATTENTIVELY AS WELL AS LINKS GIVEN IN DESCRIPTION.. TRIP IS ON SKIS. This event is organized under the Alpine Mentorship Program (AMP) that will be run over the next year. The goal of the AMP program is to develop stronger mountaineering base of trip leaders and participants in the Alpine Club. Since this is a mentorship event, participants are expected to make decisions and actively participate in trip organization. Participants will be mentored by Brent Peters, ACMG guide. A good prerequisite would be the Bow Area mountaineering trip held Apr 24-26 which is for level 1 and 2.

For more details on the AMP program refer to the ACC site mentorship-program/

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!

Fee is non-refundable but if there is enough interest you might be able to find a replacement to take your spot.
*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons. The Calgary Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
