This mentorship event is part of the AMP (Alpine
Mentorship) program organized by the ACC Calgary
Alpine Chair jointly with ACMG Guide Brent Peters.
A hostel based trip out of Golden BC.
The goal is to learn, plan, and
execute day trips in Rogers Pass.
There is significant pre-trip study required –
specifically you will prepare a day trip plan for
Rogers Pass, and provide feedback on plans made by
participants. By night, we will meet to check
conditions, choose a plan, and study its details.
By day, we’ll take turns leading the group through
the objective (set up-track, make safe terrain
choices, keep the group safe and together, choose
ski lines, select safe re-group locations etc).
Cost: $376 (includes hostel fees).
Each participant will prepare and submit a trip
plan (format provided) for an assigned/suggested
objective by Jan 12. Once complete, plans will be
circulated to all participants for review.
Depart Friday 1pm from carpool. Planning session
at hotel from 6-8pm to review ski conditions,
present/review plans, and select plan for
Saturday. All participants prepare to lead
Saturday – Ski, lead, follow. After dinner, meet
in hotel from 6-8pm to review notes from the day,
and select day 2 objective (based on conditions).
All participants prepare to lead the trip.
Sunday – Ski, lead, review. Return to Calgary

You want to learn more about Rogers Pass terrain -
maybe you have skied there, but want to become
much more familiar with day trip terrain. You have
completed AST1 and/or AST2, and have taken a
crevasse rescue course. You are committed to
some prep work to prepare (and revise)
a trip plan, and study/review all other plans
circulated to you PRIOR to the weekend. You can
comfortably ascend 1200m in a day.
