So, it's early(ish) season. Let's see if there is any ice out there. This will be a relaxed weekend and a chance for us to get together to hopefully try out some ice and chat about plans for the rest of the season. The climbing will depend on what's happening that weekend conditions and avalanche wise, so details will be released closer to the time, but it will be fun. Saturday night will be a pot luck, but bring food for all the other meals. A few beginners are welcome - as long as you can belay, operate in winter and bring all your own personal kit (if you're struggling for kit, speak to us....) ** Attendees will be pre-screened. We will get back to you and let you know if you are on the trip. If you haven't climbed with us before then please email with your experience - clareormerod@hotmail.co.uk. ** *** We have had to pay upfront for the beds as we booked 10+ beds. So, once confirmed on the weekend then payment will need to be paid to us before you are moved onto the attending list. The cost is $64.50 for 1 bed x 2 nights. ***
Required Items to Bring:
All the usual ice climbing stuff. More details given nearer to the time.

*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.

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.
