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.
Covid has added requirements for
participants, including proof that you are fully COVID vaccinated and completion
of a “Declaration of Health”. Other COVID requirements, such as negative rapid
tests, may be required. As Federal and Provincial health regulations continue
to change, we will need to be flexible to accommodate them.
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.
