With winter quickly approaching and the stoke rising to get on the skis, the ACC Calgary Section is looking for the assistance of trip leaders that are willing to help out with the BITS program.

What is BITS and why do we need you? The BITS (Backcountry Introduction to Tour Skiing) program gives section members who are new to backcountry skiing the opportunity to head out with a group of like-minded individuals. The purpose is to help build confidence in the backcountry, share skills, be safe and most importantly have fun. Simply put, the demand for this program is greater than the supply of trips currently on the calendar. While these may not be the most exciting trips for seasoned backcountry skiers, we all had to start somewhere. The feeling of sharing your love of skiing with others will provide a reward in itself. 

Interested? Please contact Dana at to discuss next steps. Or if you are feeling super pumped after seeing this, feel free to post a trip, labeled with “BITS”, directly to the calendar!

Thank you in advance!
