Itinerary:
This posting is reserving spots on the calendar for the Asulkan Hut. The trip is 2 nights at Asulkan Cabin. The trip leader may suggest departing the evening of the day before and staying in Golden so that the group gets to the hut early in order to do more skiing. The cost is $80 per person, not including wilderness passes, which you must purchase separately. Asulkan is the premier hut for skiing in Rogers Pass and this trip promises to be a fantastic trip. Please wait until after the coordinator has responded to you with regards to your eligibility to pay for the trip. Payment can be made via e- transfer to the Treasurer at treasurerClub@acccalgary.ca 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. There are no refunds for cancellations by participants unless the participant finds a suitable replacement.
Required Items to Bring:
Overnight gear/food for hut, ski touring kit, glacier travel kit.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:   Reservation for the hut is 10 people Friday Feb 22 to Sunday 24.  
Carpool Departure Time:   06:00 AM
Carpool Location:   Car pool lot by COP

Notes:
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.”

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).
