This posting is reserving spots on the calendar for the Bow-Yoho traverse. Please note that Tyler is a coordinator only and will not be attending. If you are interested in leading this trip please email Tyler at The trip cost is waived for the trip leader. The trip is 3-4 nights, and is Bow Hut on March 21, Guy on March 22, Stanley Mitchell on March 23 and 24. The group may select to exit Sunday instead of Monday depending on conditions. The cost is $140 per person, not including wilderness passes, which you must purchase separately. The Bow Yoho is a classic and the added day at Stanley Mitchell potentially allows for more great skiing at one of the best locales in the Rockies - this trip promises to be a fantastic trip. Once the coordinator has responded to you with regards to your eligibility for the trip you can secure a spot by sending your payment (via e- transfer) to the Treasurer at along with the following information: Name, Full Address with postal code, phone number, email, event title and date, trip leader/coordinator and the password to accept the payment. These details assist the bookkeeper in sending out receipts for payments. Once I have confirmation from the Treasurer that you have paid your deposit, I will move you from the waiting to the attendee list. The easiest way to send payment is via e-transfer.

If you are interested please sign up and send an email to the trip coordinator(s) with your experience level, including your fitness level, ski ability and avalanche/crevasse rescue knowledge. The trip traverses serious glacier and complex avalanche terrain and it is highly recommended participants have AST 2, first aid and crevasse rescue. Please be somewhat specific in your response with regards to your ability: i.e. “I have taken AST 1, get out 5 times per year, typically ski 750m a day. For downhill ability, I find diamonds relatively tough and like to take my time. I just took crevasse rescue this year, but haven’t touched a rope since” or “I’ve been to this specific area 10x in the past two years. I get out 50+ days a year, have taken AST 2 and more, typically ski 2000m a day, love to charge double diamonds at the ski hill, and can pull
someone out of a crevasse in under 30 minutes solo.”


*Please note: $10 of the trip fee is going to support training of trip leaders within the Calgary section.  Why?  Because we have a high demand for trips and want more good trip leaders in order to meet that demand.  We appreciate your support in this endeavour.  

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

There are no refunds for cancellations by participants unless the participant finds a suitable replacement.
*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.
