About Altitude

When and where is Altitude?

Altitude is from Thursday, June 4 to Sunday, June 7, 2019 in Calgary, Alberta.

We are meeting at the Delta Hotels Calgary Downtown for this year’s conference. This year we are expanding our offering to all patrollers, with interesting and engaging session, as well as our business meetings, election of new board members, and the AGM. Patrollers from across Canada will be there so we hope to have you come and join the camaraderie at Altitude 2020!

What is included in registration?

The structure of our registration fee this year has changed. After a review of Altitude 2019, we realized that trying to grab a meal at a local restaurant near the hotel between session often led to people being late for the session. This year our registration package includes lunch on Friday and Saturday, and dinner on Saturday as part of the National Recognition Ceremony. Our hosts, Calgary Zone and Mountain Division, have graciously sponsored our Friday evening dinner, with a traditional “beef on a bun” meal and a beverage of your choice. We have also added a small administrative fee to cover the incident costs of running the conference.

The early bird rate for the full registration is open from February 3, 2020 to March 31, 2020. The rate is $395. After April 1, 2020 to May 15, 2020, the rate increases to $410, with the final rate of $425 on May 16, 2020 until June 1, 2020. Due to the occupancy rate of the venue, we do reserve the right to close registration early – however we will give plenty of notice if that looks like it might happen.

We love seeing new faces at these events, and to encourage new participants, we have reduced the rate to $270 for members of the CSP who have less than five years of service. If you’re NOT a part of a zone or division executive and you’re interested in attending, please choose the “1 to 5 year” option on the registration page.

Only available to attend for the day? Our daily rate is $185 (includes lunch and dinner on Friday and lunch only on Saturday). How about bringing a guest to the Saturday evening dinner and National Recognition Ceremony? Join us for only $75.

Accommodations can be reserved by calling the Delta Hotels Calgary Downtown inside sales desk directly at (403)266-1980 or toll-free at (800) 665-8571. Reservations must be made prior to May 6 to be eligible for our room block. Please see the hotel information for further details.

When does Altitude registration open and close?

Registration is open now and closes on May 30 at noon.

What's the dress code?

For the meetings and plenary sessions, business casual would be best (no jeans or t-shirts please).  Saturday is our special evening where we recognize the achievements of our members. As such, business attire is appropriate, or smart casual (no jean please, suit and tie/cocktail dress not required).
