Itinerary:

The intention of this trip is to climb Athabasca, by the Silverhorn on the Saturday - setting off very early to get the best snow conditions. We will climb as 2 rope teams, but we will be in close communication and take the same route.

Of course this is entirely weather dependent, and we may do something entirely different

This is part of the Alpine Review and you will also have to register for this

Prior to the trip we will head out on a scramble to get to know people, and there will be a crevasse rescue practice night beforehand too when people are confirmed on the trip

All participants will be pre-screened, so please email your alpine / mountaineering / climbing experience. If you don't get in touch, you will not get on the trip

Required Items to Bring:
2 ice axes, crampons with anti-balling plates, harness, helmet, headlamp, glacier gear (inc. crevasse rescue kit), warm clothing, drink. A detailed kit list will be sent when you're accepted on the trip.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Meals/snacks/drinks, ski pole, extra clothing, small personal 1st aid kit and any required personal items.

How to Get There:
Carpool Departure Time:   05:00 PM
Carpool Location:   Petro Canada Highway 1 / Highway 22
Carpool Directions:   Meet at the North / Cochrane end - we will also organize a Calgary car pool closer to the time.

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.
