The Alpine Club of Canada

The Alpine Club of Canada – Vancouver Section

An outdoor community for mountain sports and culture.

The Alpine Club simply continues to do what it has been for over 100 years; bring together, and give voice to Canada’s mountain community. There isn’t any special magic about what makes the ACC one of the best communities on the west coast, we’re just lucky to have some of the best volunteers around.

Our members organize day-trips, camps and weekend outings, while the club organizes a wide range of outdoor courses and workshops to support our community. Whether you are a hiker, backcountry skier, snowshoer, ice climber, rock climber or mountaineer, there will be an activity for you!

Not sure if it’s the right fit? Come out to one of our social events; you’ll get to meet a ton people, and you’ll hear about some of the things we’re working on too.

Want to be part of something bigger than yourself? Check out our membership information page for more details.
