Do you want to get involved in the Alpine Mentorship Program (AMP) or just simply want to know more about it?

Join this virtual session to learn about the program, ask questions, offer up trip ideas you'd like to see on the calendar this winter, find out how you can get a discounted price by helping to co-ordinate an AMP event.  You can also ask questions directly of Peak Stratagem guide, Brent Peters, he is an IFMGA Mountain Guide certified by the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides and is the founder of PeakSTRATAGEM and PeaksEAT as well as the writer for the ice climbing book, Icelines. This event is open to all members and non-members.

This winter is an open canvas, we will discuss what was offered last year, you can suggest trips you can take over organizing and get a discount (by helping out)!  Come and see what cool events will be coming up that you can participate in if you don't fee like organizing anything. We're also keen to hear what events you will like to see posted.  Bring your calendar!


1) 7:00 - 7:30 Explain what AMP is, how you can participate, how do you get a good deal on events and what you need to do if you want to organize any events.
2) 7:30 - 8:00 Go through list of trips offered last year and discuss other options.

3) If you want to co-ordinate one of the trips, we can assign it to you right at the event and it is all yours!

4) Paper work and other bits.


Required Items to Bring:
Your calendars, ideas, and enthusiasm to want to get out, learn and do cool trips.

About you: You are keen to get involved with the Alpine Club as a participant or trip organizer. Maybe you don't want to lead trips in the future, but are missing some skills to do ski, ice or other alpine trips. Or, maybe you just want to get affordable alpine experience.  Existing trip leaders are welcome to attend if they would like to share their experience and are keen to help attendees become trip organizers.

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.

Trip Feedback

Thank you for your response.
