The Alpine Club of Canada

ACC Adventures Winter Porter

We are hiring porters (casual) to support our winter Mountain Adventures programs.

The role of the porter is to deliver any necessary food, fuel, and potential group equipment the destination of a given trip (often, ACC huts). Typically, these are day-trip excursions. However, there may be occasionally a longer trip requiring the porter team to stay overnight.

Porters must be physically fit, be experienced backcountry travellers, and have all of their own personal gear for safe travel in the mountains.

Portering is a casual job within the ACC and most ACC trips only require 1-2 porters. Work is offered on an as needed basis.
