We've booked out the Nordegg Hostel again this year to access lots of great beginner & intermediate ice with likely low avalanche hazard. This also
beds (some double beds) in small rooms (5 per
water, sauna, fire pit, large kitchen & common
areas for our
evening meals. Lots of space to dry gear
overnight. There are
several great beginner climbing areas as well
a number of
multi-pitch and harder routes. Icefield Parkway
climbs are also
accessible from this base.
Ice Review is a season-opener. It is an
opportunity for beginners to get their feet
receive some mentorship, for members to
socialize, join one-
another on climbs, and practice skills.
Reservation cost is $90 per person for the
weekend, including a group meal/drinks on
lodging for both Friday and Saturday nights.
leaders, cook volunteers & coordinators will
be eligible for subsidy to this cost based on the extent of participation.
Reservations Amount is $90, to be payed through PayPal (PayPal will take credit card and VISA debit payments-see button below). Once paid, please email confirmation to Marie-Eve Lamothe-Gascon and/or firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW THE $$ WILL WORK: Once payment is

- reimburse excess funds to participants in
cash at the event

FOOD: Closer to the event I will ask for
information about dietary needs, at a minimum I
expect to be able to accommodate: omnivores,
vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free. We may be
able to get more specific as well. I will
need volunteers to help with food prep &
******BEGINNERS & Courses**************
Beginners are welcome, there will be Top-
crags set up where you can learn the basics. If
you have the chance to take an intro-to-ice
course beforehand, it is recommended but not required. We also have an option to

directly: email@example.com. If we have
enough interest for learning the same skill
(Introduction to ice, leading on ice, or other
ideas) then I can book a guide. Cost may be an
additional $125-$250 per person depending on
the course and number of days. We would need at
least 4-6 people who want to do the same
