The Alpine Club of Canada

The Alpine Club of Canada – Vancouver Section

Want to meet other backcountry enthusiasts? Our section offers trips almost every weekend and many weekdays too. The trips are interspersed with 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 learn how to climb or travel in the backcountry, or even just to spend more time in the mountains. New members who already have strong outdoor skills will find themselves in excellent 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. The Vancouver Section provides local services to members such as free trips and low cost courses.

The section has monthly meetings where members and guests provide an entertaining presentation about local mountain activities or adventures in other countries.
