The plan is to drive out on Friday after work and camp at Ya Ha Tinda - we will have the club's dome tent as a cook tent and the club's stoves. We will arrange a communal evening meal for the Friday night (for a small nominal charge to cover costs), suggest a pot luck dinner on the Saturday + Sunday night, but you will need to bring your own breakfasts, lunches and snacks. One night will have a pirate theme, due to the only pun we could think of for Ya Ha Tinda. Climbing: The aim is to climb the range of ice climbs round there over the next couple of days, which may include crossing the Red Deer River for access. To be considered as a participant, please send me a short email describing your (ice)climbing experience if you haven't been on ice with us. A more detailed gear list etc. will get sent out once participants are moved from the waiting list.
Required Items to Bring:
Ice Climbing Gear, Winter Camping Gear (depending on conditions, at least down to -15°C), food, booze, headlamp, radios, camping chair.

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

The Dry Ranges are called dry for a reason - we may cancel, or propose an alternative venue if the ice isn't in condition.
*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. 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).
The Calgary Section of the Alpine Club of Canada is a not for profit / flow through course and trip provider. We organize courses and trips based on member demand and divide any costs that we incur between event attendees. In other words, we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
