PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT POSTING IS JUST FOR THE HOSTEL BOOKING. THERE WILL BE INDIVIDUAL TRIPS POSTED FOR CLIMBING, IF YOU ARE INTERESTED THEN YOU NEED TO SIGN UP FOR THEM SEPARATELY.
We've booked out the Rampart Creek Hostel this year to access lots of great beginner & intermediate ice with likely low avalanche hazard. This also means bunk beds in small rooms (6 per room), hot water, sauna, fire pit, large kitchen & common areas for our evening meals. Lots of space to dry gear overnight. There are several great beginner climbing areas as well as a number of multi-pitch and harder routes.
Ice Review is a season-opener. It is an opportunity for beginners to get their feet under them and receive some mentorship, for members to socialize, join one- another on climbs, and practice skills.
This is posted as a pre-screened event so we can ensure we have the right mix of beginners + leaders. If you haven't been on an event with Clare or Chelsea please email your experience to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reservation cost is $90 per person for the weekend, including a group meal/drinks on Saturday and lodging for both Friday and Saturday nights. Trip leaders, cook volunteers & coordinators will be eligible for subsidy to this cost based on the extent of participation.
$90 to be paid through PayPal (PayPal will take credit card and VISA debit payments) The Paypal button will be added when the subsidy for leaders is agreed upon.
HOW THE $$ WILL WORK: Once payment is collected and the event is complete, we will
- pay the hostel booking
- pay for food for the Saturday night meal
- provide subsidies to trip leaders/mentors and organizers
- reimburse excess funds to participants in cash at the event
Look for a forthcoming email request for leaders to post trips. You can post at any time. We need a diversity of TR\cragging sites, multipitches, large groups,small groups, more or less teaching\mentoring.
FOOD: Closer to the event I will ask for some information about dietary needs, at a minimum I expect to be able to accommodate: omnivores, vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free. We may be able to get more specific as well. I will need volunteers to help with food prep & cooking.
Beginners are welcome, there will be Top- Rope crags set up where you can learn the basics. If you have the chance to take an intro-to-ice course beforehand, it is recommended but not required.
