Itinerary:
In 1967 to celebrate Canada's 100th birthday the Alpine Club of Canada organized what they called YACE (Yukon Alpine Centennial Expedition). The expedition was a huge undertaking and had three parts: The first was an ascent of Good Neighbour Peak on the Alaska Yukon Border by 4 Canadian climbers and 4 American climbers; the second part was first ascents by 4 person teams chosen from across Canada,of 13 peaks named after all the provinces and territories and one more peak called Centennial Peak and the third part of the expedition was a General Mountaineering Camp along the edge of the Steele Glacier (with 200 people attending). The whole expedition was a great success, with no injuries and many new routes and first ascents completed. To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of YACE the Alpine Club of Canada commissioned Chic Scott and Glen Crawford to make a film of the expedition.
Required Items to Bring:
Cash for food and drink. We can access the venue (2nd floor members' lounge) from 6.30pm and can chill on the patio with a drink or even get something to eat from the yummy menu!

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.
