We fly in on Sunday from Golden heliport. After moving in and orientation go for short ski to review conditions.

During week we do day trips as group desires. Morning meeting reviews snow conditions for the day.

The following Sunday we clean up hut and pack for exit.

Required Items to Bring:

Full avalanche gear. No glacier skiing in area.

Detailed list will be provided; items like sleeping bag.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:  

Meet Sunday at 11:00 am at Golden airport.



This is an area for strong intermediate level skiers. Limited steep.

If weather is good and snow stable will ski open alpine areas above treeline. If weather is poor and or stability poor we have treed runs we can ski.

Costs unknown at this time. The 2022 participant cost was $1,250. There will be an inflationary increase.

All RMS ski camps are self catered and self guided. AST2 or equivalent experience is required. We will continue our RMS practices which include an avi scenario upon arrival at the lodge. As well each participant is expected to perform personal snow assessments each day and actively participate in daily group risk assessment discussions. Copies of our daily assessment worksheets are available on the camps page of the section website and from the individual camp managers. They are a modified version of the ACMG morning guides worksheet, adapted for the RMS by the CAA.


All participants will need to follow any public health guidelines in effect at the time of the camp.


If a trip gets cancelled or delayed after participants have paid, the financial impact varies depending on the lodge, but basically you should expect that any funds you have paid are likely non-refundable. If you have to cancel a trip after paying, the camp managers will make every possible attempt to find a qualified replacement who will refund your payment. Please consider seeking cancellation insurance.

*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 Rocky Mountain Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
