Travel cancellation/interruption Insurance

We highly reccommend that you look into travel insurance especially for the longer trips. As our policy states, you may lose your deposit if you cancel shortly before a trip. Travel Underwriters offer packages which may be of interest to you.

Presently we are forwarding people to The Alpine Club of Canada where they are dealing with this insurance package for both members and non members of the Alpine Club of Canada.

Please contact Chelsea Selinger for further information.

The Snow and Ice course takes place at the Columbia Icefields area. Other courses take place near the Jasper townsite. Camping is available at the Columbia Icefields campground or at Wilcox campground. Early season Jonas is a good spot as well, a bit more driving but lower elevation. For courses closer to Jasper, campgrounds are easily found near town, or check the links below. Jasper Hostels are good as well, the Beauty Creek Hostel is the closest to the Icefields.

All course participants must read, understand, achnowledge and sign a waiver. It is important that you look at the waiver in advance, and be ready to sign it at the start of the course.I will provide a hard copy for you before the course or trip begins.
