National Team Training on the Wapta Icefield

Members of the Senior and Development teams were on the Wapta Icefield this month training with ACMG Ski Guide Aaron Chance and ACMG Apprentice Guide Andrew McNab.

Team members worked on mountaineering skills, terrain management and skied to some of the summits around Bow Hut. It was wonderful to learn from two ski guides who are also former skimo racers.

A big thank you to the Alpine Club of Canada for their support for the training weekend!
