FINISH YOUR SEASON RIGHT! Come to the Freshfields.
This trip will dovetail in with the AMP trip to the Freshfields
to save on helicopter costs and use common camp facilities for
cooking and chilling. Cost is $725 per person.
The Freshfields are the premier ski touring, ski
mountaineering, and all around great destination in the
Rockies. We’ll have a good camp set up, we will
likely take the 5m dome tent, and enough gear to make this
more comfortable than your average ACC hut. The cost
covers heli and group camp stuff.
Tyler is a coordinator only, he won’t be leading the
daily tours. You, or someone in the group should be
comfortable leading tours in glaciated terrain. You will
need to supply your own sleeping bag and tent for sleeping
(can be arranged with the group). There is an option to
have food supplied for 5 days for $200.
Flexibility to adjust dates slightly by a day or two is a
definite asset for this trip. The main concern is having
good weather both for flights and skiing.

at the beginning of the event. Read the waiver carefully to ensure you fully
understand it. If possible, please print and fill it out except for
the signature fields before arriving at the event.
Cancellation/Partial Attendance: Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!
There is a chance the whole trip is cancelled due to weather.
We need limited cloud cover to fly in and out. If the whole trip
is cancelled due to weather a full refund will be made. If you
drop out for other reasons you will forfeit your payment. You
may find a replacement to go in your place (who is approved
by the coordinator) and they will pay you.
*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.
