      Yes our social meetings that usually happen on the fourth Tuesday are open to the public. Check the events calendar for details since we sometime switch the venue. For the mentorship program you have to be a member and have participated in some club trips.

      We have a new mentorship prime: Michael McMinn. He will be developing a new program over the winter. With COVID you and your mentor would probably have to be in the same bubble. Please check our contacts page for Michael’s contact information.

    Because of COVID-19 we are not sure. We may be able to have a backcountry program starting in January. We prefer that people come on some trips so we get to know you and your skills before you join the mentorship program. The rock-climbing and mountaineering program usually starts in the April to May timeframe. Coming on trips is a great way to learn from a variety of people. Many of our club members are very skilled and happy to pass on their expertise. Please ask questions when you come on trips. If we don’t know we will point you to another member who can help.
