New Alpine Club of Canada Sec­tions

Gripped - - NEWS -

Dur­ing the Alpine Club of Canada (acc) 2018 An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing, acc board mem­bers unan­i­mously voted for the cre­ation of new sec­tions, one be­ing Great Plains. “The new acc sec­tion will serve the ‘Treaty Four Lands of Great Plains’ that will en­com­pass the ma­jor­ity of south­ern Saskatchewan with its op­er­at­ing cen­tre in Regina,” said a press re­lease. “The new sec­tion will pro­vide a great op­por­tu­nity for who live a lit­tle too far away from Saskatchewan Sec­tion head­quar­ters in Saska­toon but still want to take part in the acc com­mu­nity.”

The new­est sec­tion of the acc, des­ig­nated at the club’s board meet­ing in late Oc­to­ber, is based out of Revel­stoke, B.C., a moun­tain town with deep roots in ex­plo­ration and guid­ing. The fol­low­ing is a press re­lease from the acc: The sec­tion will rep­re­sent a hugely his­tor­i­cally im­por­tant moun­tain area and will fill in the space on the acc mem­ber­ship map be­tween our Okana­gan (B.C.) and Rocky Moun­tain (Al­berta) sec­tions. In ad­di­tion to Revy, the Columbia Moun­tains Sec­tion will ser­vice climbers, hik­ers and skiers from Golden to Salmon Arm and in­clude the Cari­bou, Monashee, Selkirk and Pur­cell moun­tain ranges.
