New this year: ACC Splitcamp
No skiers on this one (sorry). This fast-paced camp is meant for boarders who want to test their downhill skills in the backcountry. You should be comfortable riding blue-black ungroomed runs at a resort. This small group (maximum of four participants per staff member) is designed to get on some Rogers Pass classic lines (avalanche conditions permitting, of course). We’ve changed the requirements slightly, so you can expect a camp geared towards newer splitboarders, with plenty of coaching on the uphill and downhill, and a chance to explore backcountry conditions with the safety of a guide.
While there’s plenty of moderate to advanced terrain accessible from the door of the Wheeler hut, the group will also have the option of skiing the short 2km out to the road and carpooling to different areas of Rogers Pass to take advantage of conditions.
The camp is based out of the Wheeler hut: the short trek in maximizes your riding time, and the hut provides a comfortable and warm base to return to every night. Tasty and nutritious meals will give you the energy that you need to push your limits and improve your skills every day of the course.
