Let's go snowshoeing in Kananaskis! This trip is geared towards beginner or intermediate snowshoers, but any level of experience is welcome. We will head out for a moderate day of fun snowshoeing, around 4-6 hours out. We'll be hiking at an easy/moderate pace, with the goal being to explore & have fun, not break speed records.
Our destination will be determined closer to the date of our trip, but potential options include Rummel Lake, Chester Lake, or Burstall Pass. I'm also open to suggestions :).
Required Items to Bring:
Snowshoes & poles, warm clothing, food, water, mask, hand sanitizer.
We will be sticking to either non-avalanche or simple avalanche terrain. If we travel in avalanche terrain, we will carry avi gear. If participants don't have avi gear or training, we'll avoid avalanche terrain entirely.
Recommended Items to Bring:
Participants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate in this event.
*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. We organize courses and trips based on member demand and divide any costs that we incur between event attendees. In other words, we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
