Group camping at Marmot Meadows returns this year! This year you can buy your "tickets" for our legendarily awesome group camping weekends on Eventbrite.
If you’ve found yourself faffing about on moderate ground, trying to figure out how to get up it faster, you’re not alone. On many of the Rockies’ classic alpine routes, moderate terrain makes up the majority of the ground travelled, and this terrain can be the bane of many a climber. This course will help you move up long routes with ease, and be back at the trailhead comfortably in time for happy hour.
Are you stoked to jump on multipitch climbs this summer? Get prepared early with our Rock Rescue course!
he Edmonton Section puts a priority on safety for all our mountain and urban activities. To this end, the Edmonton Section Board adopted a policy that at least 1 person on every trip must have valid First Aid training plus a CPR-A valid certificate, effective Nov. 1, 2018. Training must be at least a 16 hour first aid course (or equivalent re-certification), such as Standard First Aid or Wilderness First Aid.
Are you an experienced multipitch climber? Do you climb a bunch on trad gear and feel comfortable teaching others how to do it? We're considering offering courses in multipitch efficiency and trad gear use this summer. We'd like to offer something unique to our membership, and a volunteer-run course would be an excellent opportunity for our members to develop their skills under your kind tutelage!
The Edmonton section of the ACC has made arrangements for its members to earn their turns Monday nights at Sunridge Ski Area
Registration is open for WOI with payment to be accepted soon. This course/skills weekend is meant for people who have never swung an ice axe or kicked a crampon into ice but would like to try. All beginners are encouraged to come try out ice climbing!
“Winter on Ice Plus” (WOI+) is a new mentorship program designed for ice climbers who have had some beginner training and want to make the transition to more challenging ice and mixed climbing routes. Most importantly, this program is intended for those that are keen to be on the "sharp end" of both climbing routes and coordinating trips with the ACC.
The Alpine Club of Canada – Edmonton Section is made up of mountain-minded individuals, who come together to share their unique strengths, knowledge and experience. It would not be the vibrant and resilient organization of 100+ years without the resourcefulness of members who also volunteer their time and energy.
Launching this fall is MTN - the Edmonton Section's very own publication on mountain culture in the Edmonton region. A small, dedicated team is working hard to prepare this fall's edition of the magazine, and they need your articles!
If you are passionate about creating a community out of our club by engaging current members more and attracting new mountain-friendly individuals and families we need you on the Section Executive Team!
The nominations are officially in for our four open board positions! As a reminder, the positions we are looking to fill are Treasurer, Social Chair, FUBAR (Urban Activities) Chair and Communications & Membership Chair.
Join us for our AGM - each current board member will give you a short report on their activity over the past year and have time to answer any questions the membership may have.
