Itinerary:

We would like to target a summit but of course, conditions may prohibit that, in which case we will try to find a tour. The destination will depend on weather, avalanche conditions, and participants experience. As a representative example, past outings include Burstall Pass Peak, Healy Pass Peak, Little Temple, Bow Peak, Purple Pk and Lipalian Mtn, Mt Haffner, Mt Field, Panorama Ridge, Smutwood. Destination will be announced closer to event date.

Required Items to Bring:

Mandatory: Transceiver (digital 2+ antennae) (remember to check your batteries if this is your first outing this year), snow shovel, probe, backcountry ski gear, and knowledge of how to use them (AST1 minimum)


Recommended Items to Bring:

Food/drink, extra clothing, any required personal items, sunglasses/ski goggles and headlamp, sunscreen, camera, FRS radio.

If we are going to a summit, an ice axe, helmet, and boot crampons might be needed. Ski crampons may be an asset and have come in handy across the season.


How to Get There:
Event Directions:   tbd - will be sent by email.  
Carpool Departure Time:   07:30 AM
Carpool Location:   TBD
Carpool Directions:   we will meet at 7:20, sign waivers and do a quick gear check, planning to leave at 7:30

Notes:

Minimum AST1 or equivalent level experience is required. If you intend to bring a splitboard, let us know. As we may not know you well (or at all), please send info to apfel.s.trudel@icloud.com and brendan714@gmail.com

  • Describe your avalanche training, crevasse rescue and glacier travel experience
  • Describe your back country ski experience
  • Describe your ski comfort level (e.g. OK on Blue runs, struggle on Black Diamonds, I do the Delirium Dive blindfolded, I'm new to this)

You will not be moved to the participant list without submitting this info!


Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!

Recommended: Food/drink, extra clothing, any required personal items, sunglasses/ski goggles and headlamp, sunscreen, camera, FRS radio.

An ice axe, helmet, and boot crampons might be needed. Ski crampons may be an asset and have come in handy across the season.


*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.
