As this course is offered out of Canmore, we welcome all participants to stay at the beautiful ACC Clubhouse and enjoy the remote atmosphere that surrounds our location. Located on a high bench overlooking the Three Sisters, Ha Ling and Mount Rundle, it's the perfect place to relax in the evenings after your climbing. You can reserve your room for the nights of the course by calling our reservations team on 403 678 3200.

Our guide for this course is ice and mixed climbing legend Sean Isaac. Sean is an ACMG alpine guide and one of the most recognizable names in the Canadian ice and mixed climbing scene. Sean wrote our new ice climbing handbook and training program for ACC trip leaders (his third publication) and we are confident there's no better mentor to help you get your ice climbing to where you want it to be. On day 4, he will be joined by two local apprentice guides for a 2:1 ratio multi-pitch day.
The ACC hires guides certified by the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG). Visit the ACMG website to learn more about what they do!
