Itinerary:
Come join us at MEC Vancouver Snowfest 2014.

Over 30 exhibitors will be in store to showcase their products; various clinics and workshops will take place through-out the day; lots of free swag will be given-away, and get a 10% off coupon for a single transaction (to be used that day only). You can also score some pretty sweet deals at the GearSwap, or bring your old gear and get some cash for it. Awesome.

The ACC, along with several other other organizations, will have a booth setup to introduce people to who we are, and what we do. Rob, Willa, Paul, Soleil, Raz, Jason & Ian will be at the booth at various times through-out the day, and we would love for you to come say hello! - Depending on when you come, there may or may not be doughnuts!
