This is the now-annual Pre-Ice-Review Ice leader training day with Scott McKay. (Ice review is still on hold pending Covid protocols). Last year's participants raved about Scott's teaching. One aspect to work on with Scott will be site/group management techniques aimed at increasing our risk management abilities for running TR crags or multipitches with novice climbers, particularly at sites that pose significant hazards. Additional or specific content can be negotiated based on participant demand. 

*PLEASE NOTE: this field day is paired with the classroom prep session on the evening of FEBRUARY 4. Please register for both events. A single fee covers both. 

Minimum of 6 participants will be needed to run the training  at the current cost. (At 5, I will offer the course at the increased cost of $144pp) 

Cost is $120/participant, you will be moved off the waitlist once payment is received. Please email confirmation of payment to

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. 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.
