Trip Details:
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 other 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 RP objective by Jan 12. Once complete, plans will be circulated to all participants for review.

Trip Weekend:
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 selected trip.
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 have done more than 10 backcountry ski trips and are comfortable skiing complex terrain (trees). 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.

Send an email with your experience to Brad Bowyer - Once you have been accepted you will be required to pay within 48 hours via an e-Transfer payment to the Treasurer. Also send to the treasurer the following information: Name, Full address including postal code, phone number, email, course/event title and date, Trip Leader/Coordinator, and the password to accept payment. Once I have confirmation from you that you have paid, I will move you from the waiting to the attendee list.

Ski touring kit (beacon, shovel, probe), glacier travel kit, food, etc.
