NOTICE: COVID-19 UPDATE
UPDATE Feb 6, 2021
Hi ACC Vancouver Section Members,
The entire volunteer ACC Vancouver Executive wants to thank our members for continuing to support the section through being members. This has been a hard time without the section being able to offer our usual activities and by remaining members you support the section to get up and running as soon as possible.
The PHO has extended the Health Directive with no immediate date for change, therefore:
No Trips are to be posted to the calendar until further notice. Please check back to the website for updates and follow announcements by our PHO.
COURSES AND SKILLS
Avalanche Canada AST courses administered by ACMG guides have been permitted to run as was communicated by Avalanche Canada to the administrators of the courses. They as well as other courses through guides are being run under an approved COVID-19 Comprehensive Safety Plan.
For the ACC Vancouver Section Courses: IBS and STGT courses were successfully run under the umbrella of Blacksheep Adventures.
As we continue into the New Year we will continue to adjust with what is being presented to us.
Vancouver Section Huts – Haberl and Tantalus huts are currently closed for their annual shutdown period. The Tantalus Hut is not due to open until the usual June 1, 2021 opening. No reservations for the Tantalus Hut are being taken at this time. Please go to the Huts section of the website for more information.
The Haberl Hut would normally open on the usual date of March 1, 2021. At this time the ACC Vancouver Section has this on hold and will not be taking any reservations. Please go to the Huts section of the website for more information.
The ACC Vancouver is continuing to deliver virtual Socials. We have been very fortunate to have had well attended Virtual Socials throughout the Fall. All Socials will be posted to the calendar so members have notice of upcoming events and read the newsletters sent out for updates.
