After careful consideration of the COVID 19 situation, the Rocky Mountain Section Board has decided to cancel all Section trips, courses, camps and socials until at least June 15th. 

Given the strong recommendations from public health officials, our own risk assessment, and decisions by many other similar organizations, we believe this unusual step is the right one in light of all endeavours to contain the spread of the virus. 

We greatly appreciate the efforts of trip leaders, course coordinators, instructors and committee members to organize these events and our members’ commitment to participate in them, and trust you will understand the decision to cancel these events.

Members who have already paid for upcoming courses will receive full refunds, as will participants on the Campbell Icefields Lodge Trip and the Mosquito Creek “Choose Your Own Adventure”.  If you have questions about the status of your refund, please contact the trip or course coordinator.  Hut trips are being given full credit by the ACC National office. 

The Board will continue to monitor the situation to determine when we can safely resume the Section’s normal activities.  If you have any questions regarding this announcement, please don’t hesitate to contact one the Rocky Section Board Members. 

For most of us, getting outdoors is important to our well-being and we hope you will still find opportunities to safely enjoy some fresh air.  And, most important, we hope you and your family stay healthy.
