Skimo Canada Season Opener
Editor’s Note - The ACC proudly supports national organizations that help to facilitate the world-class athletes right in our backyard, like Ski Mountaineering Competition Canada (SMCC)! The ACC/SMCC coordinate the race calendar, record results, and keep athletes’ rankings, select national teams for international events, train and certify race officials, etc.
We recently had members of the SMCC National Team up at the Bow Hut to conduct their training with ACMG Guides Aaron Chance and Andrew McNab. The Wapta Icefield provides the perfect terrain to help brush up on mountaineering skills as well as terrain management on skis - and you can bag a few peaks!
A solid outing friends!
