This mentorship event is part of the AMP (Alpine Mentorship Program) organized by ACC Calgary section jointly with ACMG Guide Brent Peters.

This Alpine Mentorship Event is for individuals who are developing their rock and ice leadership and who are comfortable with glacier rope systems and crevasse rescue. Participants will be coached on trip planning and how to safely lead a rope team through snow, ice and rock terrain. Objectives that fall within the scope of this event include Hound's Tooth, Marmolata, Pigeon Feathers, and Pigeon Spire.

This event is for “Advanced Beginner” to “Intermediate” level mountaineer who has done a handful of alpine and lots of scrambling or ski mountaineering trips. Required Skill Sets to Participate are:

  • Previous alpine experience participating in PD trips or difficult and/or winter scrambles
  • Ice climber beginner
  • Rock climber beginner
  • 3-person crevasse rescue
  • Fitness level to carry a 45 pound pack over 2 days with 1200m elevation gain per day

Cost: $721 (For all 4 days and includes the cost of an ACGM Guide. Cost of camping will be extra and will be paid on the first day of the event). This event is a great value compared to other similar events.

High level plan is as follows:

DAy 1 - hike in, build camp, practice and planning routes, Day 2 - summit, Day 3 - summit, Day 4 - practice and out

Since this event is for intermediate mountaineers who have previous mountaineering experience, we will be screening people to ensure they meet the above requirements. Process to sign up is as follows:

  • Put your name on the waitlist.  
  • Email your experience to Vi Pickering (pickervi@gmail.com)
  • Vi will tell you if you have been accepted or not.
  • Once accepted send an e-Transfer payment to the Treasurer at treasurerAMP@acccalgary.ca . This payment must be made within 7 days of being accepted. If you don’t pay, we will move onto screening the next participant and you are moved to the bottom of the line.
  • When you send your payment also send to treasurerAMP@acccalgary.ca the following information: Name, Full address including postal code, phone number, email, course/event title and date, Trip Leader/Coordinator, and the password to accept payment.
  • Email the e-Transfer evidence to the trip coordinator – Vi Pickering (pickervi@gmail.com). Once I have confirmation from you that you have paid, I will move you from the waiting to the attendee list.

You need your personal gear: Tent (sharing arrangements will be made closer to the event) and other camping gear, harness, mountaineering boots or solid hiking boots, crampons, glacier travel gear, ice axe, sleeping bag, etc. More detailed list will be provided closer to the event.

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

There will be no refunds for this event unless a suitable replacement is found that has been accepted by the event organizer.
*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.
