This is an opportunity to practice using your beacon and going through a few avalanche search and rescue scenarios before the season gets into full swing. It's super important to practice your beacon search and rescue skills as it could mean saving your friend or loved one. I hope some of you are able to make it! 

Required Items to Bring:

Your Avalanche Canada Companion Rescue card if you have one. It's a great reminder of the steps involved in a successful avalanche search and rescue. Please ensure you bring lots of warm layers, water, snacks and a lunch with you as there isn't anything close by to purchase hand warmers, food, etc.

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.
