participants have AST 2, first aid
and crevasse rescue. Please be somewhat
specific in your response with regards to your
ability: i.e. “I have taken AST 1, get out 5
times per year, typically ski 750m a day. For
downhill ability, I find diamonds relatively
tough and like to take my time. I just took
crevasse rescue this year, but haven’t touched
a rope since” or “I’ve been to this specific
area 10x in the past two years. I get out 50+
days a year, have taken AST 2 and more,
typically ski 2000m a day, love to charge
double diamonds at the ski hill, and can pull
someone out of a crevasse in under 30 minutes
*Please note: 10$ of the trip fee is going to
support trip leader training within the club.
Why? Because we have lots of demand for trips
and need more good trip leaders to fill the
demand. We hope you will support this
*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.
