The 2019 Mountain Guides Ball


The 30th Annual Mountain Guides Ball

The Mountain Guides Ball is an annual gala event of The Alpine Club of Canada (ACC) and the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG) that brings together members of the mountain community to celebrate our mountain culture and raise funds for the ACC’s Environment Fund.

Each year, a Patron is honoured for their contribution to our mountain community and new mountain guides are awarded their UIAGM pins. The Rimrock in Banff serves up a gourmet dinner with wine and the evening’s final hours are spent socializing and dancing.

2019 Silent Auction

Go to auction items


The silent auction for the 2019 Mountain Guides Ball is committed to building our Environment Fund to increase investments in mountain conservation.

We recognize that access to the mountains obligates us to understand and protect these unique environments. We are committed to stewardship of the areas in which we recreate and to leadership in their preservation and protection. Your auction bids directly fund this legacy of environmental improvement and we thank you for your support!

Learn more about how you can support our Environment Fund.
