Itinerary:
“Nobody ever died wishing they had spent more time behind a desk.” Will Gadd is one of the top outdoor adventure athletes in the world (Outside, Men's Journal and Explore.). He is best known for wild outdoor adventures in multiple different sports, but he's most proud of his ability to complete those adventures safely and share them with others. He has appeared in, hosted or produced more than 100 global television projects. He is an award-winning writer (New York Times, Men's Journal, etc.), film maker, and dad (no awards yet). His book on ice climbing is the top publication in its field, and has been translated into five languages. Gadd's presentations on "Risk and Reward" and related topics take him all over the world to speak to audiences ranging from Nike and Enbridge to at-risk youth. He is a National Geographic “Adventurer of the year" and recently became the first person to climb a frozen Niagara Falls. Last winter he used his ice climbing skills to find new life forms under a glacier, a world first. He is an ACMG guide, and uses way too much spice in his cooking.
Required Items to Bring:
Cash for food and drink.

Notes:
Within the business portion of this members meeting a proposal will be made for the club to book a private hut for the purpose of skiing in the 2019 and 2020 ski seasons. These trips will be ran on a cost recovery basis. The amount of the deposit requires approval by membership. Specific questions can be addressed in advance by contacting the ski chair at skiing@acccalgary.ca

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


*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.
