Food is not provided as part of the course. Please bring along a packed lunch and some snacks for your field days.
As this course is offered out of the ACC Clubhouse in Canmore, we invite all out-of-town participants to stay with us. Located on a high bench overlooking the Three Sisters, Ha Ling and Mount Rundle, the ACC Clubhouse hostel is the perfect place to relax while completing your Crevasse Rescue Course. You can reserve a room for the night between your classroom day and field day upon reservation. Or if you need to stay longer, call our reservations team on 403 678 3200 ext. 300.

Our on-staff ACC guide, Doug Latimer, oversees our crevasse rescue program. Doug has almost 20 years of experience in teaching instructional courses and is currently writing his own e-book on crevasse rescue which we hope to include with the course as soon as it is available. We are extremely excited to have him on board for another season after rave reviews in his past years working with us.
We want to provide the best possible learning experience and give you maximum opportunity to ask questions. So, for our field days, we bring in an extra guide/instructor where necessary to keep participant-to-guide ratios below a maximum of 6:1.
The ACC hires guides certified by the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG). Visit the ACMG website to learn more about what they do!
