Session 1 of 2: I would like to invite any aspiring trip leaders who want to start leading NON-TECHNICAL trips this winter to join me with their skis (cross-country or skate skis) or snow-shoes. I will give you an introduction on how to lead non-technical trips - theory short and sweet by the parking lot - then we will go for a few loops during which we will stop and I'll share group management tips.
By Non-Technical trips we mean: cross-country skiing, skate skiing, snowshoeing and ski touring or any winter travels in non-avalanche terrain. Also in-city or close-by-towns events such as running, biking, walking or hiking as well as climbing gym or social events.
I am a firm believer that our section can and will benefit of more such Non-Technical trips to be organized because of the positive impact those Non-Technical sports and outings have on our fitness. I am also convinced that these at times shorter outings are a spring board to many more adventures in our beautiful Rockies. So don't be shy & join us!
Anyone interested in joining, please review the following TWO documents:
- on our ACC Calgary Section Trip Leader tab, the How To become a Trip Leader page and..
- the New Non-Technical Leader Questionnaire.
and bring questions and concerns so we talk about it.
Session 2 of 2: will consist of a 1 hour online meeting to discuss itineraries, show you how to post your trips on the ACC calendar and tips & tricks from an experience trip leader.. plus all your questions of course.
