Itinerary:
It has been my custom to scramble up a mountain before the big feast and thus I am once again asking anyone that is keen for some exercise and a fun outing to join me on that day. We will have to see what the snow and weather conditions are before we determine which mountain gets climbed. The range of peaks available is numerous and if snow conditions allow, we could tramp up the Opal Ridge, Mount Baldy, head up EEOR, or just hike up Lady Macdonald and still make the summt, or do the Heart Mountain Traverse. If it is really rotten out there we would simply hike up Cox Hill, do Prairie or head up To Yam Shoulder and see how far the trail takes us beyond there. We should be back in good time to be washed up and ready to embark on any Christmas like festivities. If we have a big group, it will be easier to break trail if need be. This year let us again add to the Christmas cheer by decorating a tree up near treeline and if we all bring a few ornaments with us it should come off pretty well and we can take some nice photos for next years photo contest, so let's have some fun out there together.
Required Items to Bring:
Warm and layered clothing, ice axe and crampons or ice walkers for icy sections, dependant on our objective, thermos for a warm drink, gaiters, and ski pole, extra gloves and mitts, ski goggles if it's blustery out.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Strong legs, some Christmas cheer, mulled wine, a Santa hat, and ornaments.

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.
