NOTICE COVID 19 UPDATE ACC VANCOUVER
Hut Closure and Trips cancelled
March 17, 2020 11:20pm
Dear Members and public,
The ACC Vancouver Section would like to bring to your attention closure of the Haberl Hut and cancellation of our trips.
With the ongoing escalation of COVID 19, updated information from the BC Government and working with our National office today, we have come to the decision to close our Haberl Hut until further notice and cancel Section trips and functions until at least the end of April.
Members please refer to the website to stay informed when trip postings will resume and if the May Social is running or not.
Our Section courses due to start at the end of April are on hold. Planning in the background will take place to keep on top of things should the situation improve allowing us to run them.
People with current Haberl Hut bookings will be contacted directly for refunds. Let us contact you, as this will ensure a faster response. Please do not overburden our fully volunteer group by sending emails asking about what is going on. No future bookings will be taking place for either the Tantalus or Haberl hut until we catch up with refunds and monitor the ever-changing environment. Inquiry emails by necessity, will be discarded to clear the inbox until we have caught up, please refer to the accvancouver.ca
website for all updates.
Please consider donating your hut fees in order for us to be able to get the hut up and running once the COVID 19 settles as funds will be very low.
We sincerely hope our members are staying healthy and follow the BC Government guidelines around social interactions and precautions to avoid the spread of COVID 19. Is is all of our responsibility to stay updated by tracking announcements put out by the BC Government.
On behalf of the ACC Vancouver Executive,

Who are we?
The Alpine Club of Canada (ACC) was founded in 1906 as Canadaʼs national mountaineering club. It consists of 20+ sections across the country, in addition to the National Office and Clubhouse in Canmore, Alberta.
We are the ACC – Vancouver Section, a mountain community that covers the geographic area from Squamish to Hope on Canada’s wonderful west coast. Our 1500+ members share a collective enthusiasm for the outdoors.
We are individuals who enjoy a variety of activities, from family hikes and easy day trips to more strenuous mountaineering, rock climbing, backcountry skiing, snowshoeing and ice climbing.
As a club, we are committed to engaging our members in the outdoors by offering ski and climbing camps, and numerous courses, workshops and opportunity to practice.
Want to know more?
Come and join us at one of our monthly meetings and slideshows, starting at 7:30 pm on the fourth Tuesday of the month, throughout the year. The location and venue may change month to month, so please check our trip calendar for details.
Want a more hands-on approach?
If meetings and slideshows arenʼt your thing, donʼt worry, weekend trips are also open to non-members at the trip leaders discretion. After spending a weekend exploring mountains with us, weʼre confident you will want to join.
