Six questions with Sean Isaac

Sean Isaac’s been a long-time ACMG Alpine Guide that often joins us on ACC Adventures, whether it be leading our Early Season Ice course, Hut Discovery programs or teaching technical rock skills. His passion has already helped many people improve their technique and push their grade.

Girls on Ice Canada Clothing Drive

Because Girls on Ice Canada is aimed at underprivileged young women who have never been on glaciers and who aren’t kitted out for mountain travel, we’re collecting gently-used gear for them.

If you’re looking to clear out some of your old gear to make room for new this summer, please consider a donation to Girls on Ice. The drop off is at Gear Up Sports in Canmore on June 6, 2:00 - 5:30pm.
