Want to learn how to shoot like a pro? Our January social features a presentation by renowned photographer Paul Zizka, as well as the results from our annual photo contest. 7:00 p.m. on January 24 at the Canmore Legion. Free for all. 


ACMG Ski Guide, Olivia Sofer, will be teaching our Advanced Crevasse Rescue on Friday, January 11th.  Take your glacier skills to the next level, and get prepared for the complexity of real-life rescue scenarios.  Just $70 for members, and $50 for RMS Trip Leaders.  For more information, see the Courses section of the website.


Our RMS Ice Leadership course is next weekend (Dec 8-9), and there are still 2 spots available! Just $120 for two full days of instruction from ACMG Mountain Guide, Jeff Bullock. This course is the perfect start to become a Section leader for ice climbing trips! See the Courses section of this site or email for more details.

The next Rocky Mountain Section social will be on Thursday, December 6 at 7:00 p.m. at the Canmore Legion. We will be having free pizza, followed by a very short annual general meeting and then a screening of one of Hans Gmoser's ski films. That night we will be showing "Rendezvous in the Selkirks", Hans' last (and some people suggest, best) film. Chic Scott will be on hand to introduce the show. At the time that they were produced, Hans travelled across all of North America showing his films to huge audiences, and their appeal has not diminished over the years.
