Alpine Club of Canada

Vancouver Section

A community of mountain enthusiasts

We are the ACC

As individuals we organize and participate in a variety of activities, from family hikes and easy day trips to more strenuous mountaineering, rock climbing, backcountry skiing, snowshoeing and ice climbing trips.

We are committed to engaging our 1500+ members in the outdoors by offering ski and climbing camps, numerous courses, workshops and opportunities to practice. We have two fantastic huts in the Tantalus range: one at Lake Lovely Water and the Jim Haberl hut in the Serratus-Dione col.  Our members can also use the huts managed by the national club and the Spearhead Hut Society too.  See our huts page for more information.

We also have social gatherings such as monthly meetings with presentations at various venues and sponsor other events.  The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour comes to Vancouver sponsored by the ACC Vancouver Section.  Check out our trip and event calendar for more details.

Please see our news blog – located under the Community tab for the latest updates on how we are operating with COVID-19
