Want to meet other backcountry enthusiasts? Our
Club trips every weekend,
backcountry courses for beginners through experts.
Whether you are a hiker, backcountry skier, snowshoer, ice climber,
rock climber or mountaineer, the ACC has an activity for you.
Joining the Alpine Club of Canada provides you with
amazing opportunities for exploration and recreation, for learning
and developing new skills, and for good companionship every day that
you're involved in the Club.
You do not need to have any
previous experience in the outdoors in order to join the Club. Many
people join the Club to get started skiing, climbing, mountaineering
or just to spend more time in the mountains. New members who already
have strong outdoor skills will find themselves in good company.

A significant player on the
Canadian mountaineering stage since 1906, the Alpine Club of Canada
provides an enormous range of
benefits and services to its members,
be they avid young sport climbers or weekend alpine warriors.
