Summit Bid Highlight: Experience


Editor’s Note: The ACC is committed to building our Environment Fund to increase our investments in mountain conservation. We’re committed to stewardship of the areas in which we recreate and to leadership in their preservation and protection. 

The Summit Bid auction at our annual Mountain Guides Ball is online and live now and your auction bids directly fund the ACC’s legacy of environmental improvement. We thank you for your support!

The auction will include great gear, fantastic experiences and exceptional mountain art. Browse the GEAR offerings below, and follow the links to the bidding. You don’t have to be present at the Ball to bid or to win.


They say to invest in experiences because they’ll carry on for the rest of your life - we tend to agree! We’re proud to present the following experience sponsors for the Summit Bid / 2018 Mountain Guides Ball, without them events like this wouldn’t be possible - thank you!

Purcell Mountain Lodge

Hit up the deepest powder in the Purcells while enjoying the luxury experience of the Private Chalet with your closest friends/family and away from the resort crowds - there’s not a whole lot we can think of that sounds more fun than this!

Check out a recent video of some Redbull athletes flipping over some ramps outside the lodge!

Sorcerer Lodge is offering a full lodge booking for Summer 2019 - that’s 18 spots! Enjoy a full week at the lodge, right at the base of the massive Nordic Glacier. Plenty of large day missions in the area with breath-taking views.

Check out Sorcerer’s summer gallery to see what you have to look forward to!

Take a step into the ice climbing world with an intro course, or further your avalanche knowledge with an AST2 course with some backcountry flavour!

Big expeditions to Nepal require a lot of time planning logistics - let World Expeditions handle that for you and just enjoy the experiences of the country!

Go deep into Jumbo Pass this winter with a Coldstream Helicopters and stay at the cabin - courtesy of the Columbia Valley Hut Society!

Everything you need to jump start your mountaineering career: ACC 2019 GMC spot, Bluebird Ice Axe, Vertical Addiction gift card and a cap!

Luxury accommodation for up to eight people, right in the town of Canmore! A great basecamp to plan your big days into the mountain.

A two-night stay for two at the Lake O’Hara Lodge - includes meals, guiding and access to all backcountry ski and snowshoes - serene alpine beauty!
