For this AMP event we will be heading to Kananaskis Country.
This mentorship event is part of the AMP (Alpine Mentorship Program) organized by ACC Calgary Section jointly with ACMG Mountain Guide Brent Peters from PeakSTRATAGEM.
This is an AMP 2-3 event and is suitable for intermediate to advanced mountaineers comfortable with 2 person crevasse rescue, steep snow and ice climbing. These members have done multiple alpine trips such as Athabasca and want to start or are already leading similar trips.
The cost for this event is $580 and includes 3 days of mentorship with an ACMG guide from PeakSTRATAGEM.
The focus will be on developing safe skills for summer and winter mountaineering including rope systems for glacier travel, crevasse rescue, trip planning and navigation. Participants will also have the opportunity to create and execute white out navigation plans. Focus will be on safe travel rather than on summits.
This is your chance to take charge while under the mentorship and coaching of an alpine guide.
Itinerary: We will meet at location TBC on the Saturday and head to K Country.
The cost of wilderness passes is not included in the event price. All participants will be responsible for obtaining + paying for their passes.

treasurer you will be moved to the confirmed
list. There will be no refund for
cancellations. Courses will run regardless of
weather unless the guide deems conditions
unsafe then a back-up option may be executed.
This is to be decided by the guide the evening
*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.
