Don't be fooled by imitators and guides with FOMO. This is the original, multi-year running volunteer-led Ski Summit Series.
The ski summit season is back! We would like to target a summit but of course, conditions may prohibit that, in which case we will try to find a tour. The destination will depend on weather and avalanche conditions.
As a representative example, past outing included Little Temple, Bow Peak, Purple Pk and Lipalian Mtn, and Mt Haffner, Mt Field, Panorama Ridge, Smutwood.
Destination will be announced closer to event date, dependent
on weather and avalanche conditions, and group

*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.
