Event Details

BIPOC of Alberta and BC, let’s connect! While the hut is on the Alberta side, BC folks can totally join too!

We would like to once again extend our time spent together. With the help of the Alpine Club of Canada (ACC) we will close off our summer by spending the weekend of Aug 27-29 at the Bow Hut . The hut itself is bright, spacious, and fantastically scenic.

We ask our allies to allow BIPOC members only to register for this event. Thank you! We love our allies, friends, and partners, but we have very limited spots and want to give BIPOC the opportunity to experience this.

We will have a bus that can pick up people in both Edmonton and Calgary. Meeting location will be sent to participants closer to the date.

This event has very limited spots so please register ASAP.

Commitment is essential to keep the event fun and accessible, if you cannot make it, please give a 48-hour notice so that your spot can be given to another person who may want to join. Last-minute cancellation is a lost spot for someone else 🙁
