Will trips ever be cancelled?

Our trips are always subject to cancellation. A list of reasons that we would cancel a trip are as follows:

  • The temperature is a sustained -20C or colder, including wind chill.

    • We would aim to reschedule the trip for a different day.

  • We are not able to access our scheduled hike due to circumstances completely out of our control, such as an active area closure.

    • If possible, we would pick a new objective outside of the closure area.

    • We would aim to reschedule the original trip when the area re-opens.

  • The weather is very poor for the trip scheduled, such as thunderstorms, hail, and blizzards.

    • Depending on what the weather is like, we would typically pick a new objective instead of cancelling altogether.

      • For example, on one of our trips in 2018 our intended hike was being poured on, but to the west was clear. When everyone got to the meeting location, we decided as a group to change the hike and we ended up having a wonderful time in the sunshine instead of the pouring rain.

    • We would aim to reschedule the original trip for a day when the weather is better.

  • The coordinator is unable to lead the trip, and we are not able to get a replacement.

    • We would aim to reschedule the trip for a different day.
