2019 Winter Camp in Golden, B.C.

When: February 15-18 2019

Where: Golden, BC

Accommodation:   Dreamcatcher

            This is our annual winter camp to Golden, B.C. - our base for fantastic backcountry skiing, ice climbing, Nordic skiing, downhill resort skiing (Kicking Horse Resort), snowshoeing and of course eating and socializing! This year the camp will be held Friday February 15th to Monday February 18th over the Family Day Long Weekend (3 nights), with full day activities taking place Saturday and Sunday.

             We will be staying in the Dream Catcher Hostel that has been the perfect location for our previous ACC section winter camps.  It is fully equipped with 10 different sleeping rooms, huge living room with wood fireplace, wifi and computer area, plenty of books to read, huge cooking stations, two beautiful resident dogs and a gear/drying room all centrally located in downtown Golden.  We are excited to announce that this year we will have the whole hostel to ourselves!  Rooms are booked for 3 nights only in order to be sure we cover the full cost of the rental. 


            Each evening we will gather in the living room to discuss the next days activities depending on what people want to do.  There will be actives for families like snowshoeing, Nordic skiing and resort skiing.  As well we will have trips for beginner/intermediate ice climbing, as well as an advanced group.  Day trips back country skiing in the world famous Rogers pass will also be available.  Of course the hostel has a fantastic living space for lounging by the fire with a good book if you'd prefer to stay indoors one of the days. 

             The food will be potluck and we will make these arrangements as the date comes closer.  The kitchen is very large with multiple cooking stations and refrigerators. 

             Thanks to our Volunteer trip leaders all non-resort activities will be free.  This is a great event to meet new ACC members and enjoy the mountains together.
