Mark your Calendars! Ice Review is Coming!
UPDATE: We will be camping at the Tunnel Mountain Village II walk in sites. They are ~$30/site/night, but people can share a site making that cost reasonable. Dinner will be provided for Saturday night at the campsite for $25, which includes a meal prepared by a red seal chef (butter chicken w/veggies, rice & naan), snacks, beverages, and door prizes. Payment in advance is required to be sure we have enough food on hand to feed everyone. This posting is for the dinner/social part of ICE REVIEW, all participants should also be signing up for specific climbing trips as well. Those will be posted in the weeks leading up to the event.

Be safe, watch out for one another. Your arrival times back home will be completely dependent on the trip you choose to participate in. Please remember money to pay for camping and food. Camping is ~$30 a site per night (participants to pay Parks directly for their sites when they arrive, you can share a site with a friend or two to save costs) and dinner will be $25. Similar to last year, participants will be required to pay for dinner up-front. In the past we've lost money when only half the registered participants show up. Please help us stick to the budget! You can do an email money transfer to: You must submit your payment for dinner prior to January 7th.

Trip Leaders:
Please post your climbing trips to the calendar, and select participants as you see fit for the style of trip you are leading. Trips can be for one or both days of the weekend.... your choice! We will not be using radios this year. If you get into trouble, call 911 or activate the rescue device of your choosing. If you are going to be finishing late Saturday night, you might also want to send us a message so we do not eat your dinner!

If you have climbed ice 0 or 1 times before, stay posted, we normally have at least one beginner friendly trip on the calendar for the weekend.

PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS: Send an email transfer to the treasurer at Then send a separate email to with the following information: That it is for ice review coordinated by Susan, your name, your mailing address, phone number, and most importantly, the e-transfer password. DO NOT make our treasurer guess the password, she hates that. Once payment is confirmed, send me (Susan), your confirmation and I'll put you on the list ofor food!

For those of you who wish to bring under-aged members out for the weekend -you will need to sign a special waiver for the under-aged participant and the guardian that signs the waiver will have to be in the company of the participant for the period of time that the under-aged participant is involved in the trip. We are happy to have ACC members of ALL AGES attend these events but the nature of winter camping, ice climbing, and the nature of this event make it important that the under-aged participant be in the company of a parent or guardian at all times.

If you can't make it to the dinner, but have paid already, you will be responsible to find someone else 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.
