We'll see how the snow and avi conditions shape up, but hopefully we can get out for some fresh yo yo powder turns or a nice ski tour. Participants should have intermediate experience backcountry skiing, be relatively fit (will move at steady moderate pace) and be comfortable skiing all different kinds of snow and through dense trees. Expect anywhere from 1000-1500m elevation gain. I will post more details later in the week. We will likely go to Hwy 93 North or South or similar.

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. 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. The Calgary Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
