Alpine review is not first come first on the weekend. The nature of alpine climbing and the limited number of spots means that each participant will have to be vetted by the individual trip leader. There will be trips for novice, intermediate, and advanced alpine climbers! Note that your position on the waitlist does not impact chances of getting on a trip. So if you see a trip you like, sign up! Members who have participated in past ACC events will be given priority over people who are not yet active with the club. It doesn't matter if you are only signed up for one trip, the tendency seems to be that leaders post trips for the Saturday and then discuss options for the Sunday during their Saturday trip or over dinner at the hostel. You won't be added on to the Alpine Review event until you have signed up for, been accepted onto a trip and paid the event fee. Please note you need to be signed up on the wait list for the whole weekend and also on the individual trips you want to attend. Costs are $100 for participants, and $80 for leaders. This covers accommodation at Rampart Creek and a communal dinner on the Saturday night, including a small amount of alcoholic beverages. (Participants are subsidizing trip leaders costs for dinner & drinks). Once you are accepted on a trip, payment should be emailed to the treasurer at You must include your name, the trip (Alpine Review), your address, and most importantly, the e-transfer password! Send proof of payment to the individual trip coordinator and also to Clare Ormerod ( Jackie Smale (, then you will be transferred onto the Review and onto the individual trip.
Required Items to Bring:
Stoke, sense of humour, and desire for alpine adventures!

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

Note that Alpine Review payments will be non- refundable, but if a person has to cancel and they are able to find a replacement suitable to the trip leader, they can sell/give over their spot.
*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.
