Prize:The North Face Alpine 50L Pack
Exploring is part of what The Alpine Club of Canada and The North Face
have in common and why they’ve been partners for well over 10 years.
Our members go out everyday of the year to expand their horizons and
views to explore themselves and the environment. Capturing photos along
the way and sharing them, helps ignite the same spirit in everyone and @lucas_really is no exception here. So go on, get out there and Never Stop Exploring.
“The rock garden on Mt Allen is 👌
We all have our Journey and it’s a path that we sometimes travel
alone and other times with partners that help us to our final
destination, known or unknown. Capturing these moments can allow us to
share this journey with others and to remind ourselves where we came
from and what we learned along the way. The Alpine Club of Canada wants
you to share your journey’s with us so that we can see where you’ve been
and where you are headed.
Our newest partner to the ACC family is Smartwool
and they have graciously provided one of their super comfy Smartloft
jackets for this month’s winner of the #GreenGreyWhite photo
“The dawn as we eyed up the most
coveted summit on Vancouver Island , Mt Colonel Foster . 2 peaks stood
in our way that we had to climb before the main summit made for 16hrs of
trad climbing, short roping and endless rappels as rain and fog
attempted to thwart our successful descent. Summiting is optional ~
Descending is Mandatory. I was so relieved to get back to my @bigagnes_ tent and sleep that night. #ExploreBeyondTheUsual | Shot on my @sonyimages @sonyalpha a6000 #journey”.
Serenity it neither a place nor a feeling, but a state of mind.
Watching our members find this has been a real experience for us and we
need to draw attention to @malhockey87
for capturing this experience with her time up in Lake O’Hara. With the
changing of the seasons, capturing just the right light to effectively
change your perception is a rare achievement. To keep your sight intact
upon this journey Adidas stepped up to protect your eyes with a pair of
the Tycane sunglasses.

We congratulate @at.altitude
for his second winning photo in our #GreenGreyWhite Instagram photo
contest. This image “overlooking Iceberg Lake and Iceberg Peak from the
descent from Mt. Wilbur” is truly Epic and was our unanimous winner in a
month with many strong entries. We envy the places that @at.altitude
explores and captures for us all to enjoy. The prize for this Epic
photo is an Arc’teryx Atom LT Hoody. Thanks to everyone who has
submitted photos and thanks to our great friends at Arc’teryx for
supplying this month’s prize.
More and more submissions and a very high standard of photos makes
picking our monthly winners harder and harder. Our winner this month is @vvalchev
with this photo that captures the majesty of our mountains. This
month’s prize is two (men’s and women’s) OR Deviator Hoodies. We
appreciate the dedication our members have to getting outside whether
they obtain their objectives or not. Perseverance and love of the
outdoors keeps us all going.
and I were the definition of spontaneous this weekend – we had a new
plan and new mountains to climb just about every 5 minutes. We got
soaked by all the rain ? and didn’t fully conquer a single summit
(originally had four in mind).The closest we got was #YoungsPeak , but ya can’t be mad while witnessing that sunset ☝?okay, maybe just a little bit..? #notgettingsh*tdone July 16, 2016″ ?: @vvalchev
And a special shout out to our friends at Outdoor Research for July’s prize.
It was a tough choice with this month’s Light theme but @blake.mcintyre
took home the prize with this fantastic image of the King of the
Mountain. The glow of a setting sun on this magnificent mountain goat
and the contrast between the clouds and mountains captured the beauty
that exists around us at all times, but especially during sunrises and
sun sets. Well done.
“King of the Mountain” @blake.mcintyre
Thanks to our good friends at Mountain Hardwear for supplying this month’s prize – a very cool Rainshadow OutDry 26 backpack..
@travisfromcanada took this month’s prize
with this photo. Fighting against the elements is a full-time job when
it comes to playing outside, and this picture captures that quality in
the worst of it. We commend Travis’ dedication to route development as
he works tirelessly through this snow storm. ACC members aren’t afraid
of a little grey weather.
“#scrubbin‘ some new routes on this steep stand-alone feature we found. Had to dig deep for the psyche to scrub in white out though.” @travisfromcanada
April's Theme: Springtime
Photo by @at.altitude
Congratulations to @at.altitude for a great shot of some early
springtime dedication. What caught our attention was the colour contrast
that the snow and mountains provided with the backdrop of Abraham Lake
in the David Thompson Corridor east of Red Deer, Alberta. The spectrum
of blue in the lake from the melt out of the lake really captures the
beauty that is unique to glacier lakes, no matter their size. We applaud
all our members zest for getting outside in the “shoulder” season. It
goes to show that with some dedication, there’s always adventures to be
“Ascending the final leg of the endless scree/snow gully on Abraham Mountain in the David Thompson wilderness.” @at.altitude.
