Mt Logan
Kings Trench Route  May 2019
by Mike Knudson
Doors @7:00 PM at the ANZA Club
Social Event @7:30 PM


While only 230m lower in elevation than Denali, Mt. Logan rarely sees more than twenty-five climbers in a year compared to Denali's thirteen-hundred. Canada's highest peak offers all the thrills without the crowds - and best of all, most of the climb can be done on skis (powder at over 5,000m.....sweet).

BCMC member Mike Knudson summitted this year with a guided group and will share his photos, some stories and talk about why Logan should be on your bucket list.


The Social will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, September 10th. The entrance door will open at 7 pm and we will begin the evening at 7:30 PM with an Update from the Executive. Please note: you must be 19+ years old to attend and may be asked to sign-in at the door to ensure we don't exceed 117 people in the hall. Once at capacity we will be forced to turn attendees away. Feel free to grab a drink at the bar before the social starts.

We'd love to hear from you! If you have recently been on an awesome adventure and you would like to do a presentation at one of our socials, please contact us at socials@bcmc.ca

The BCMC has been a long standing/founding member of the Federation of Mountain Clubs and BCMC members form a large portion of FMC committees.  However, many of us now have concerns regarding our continued membership in the FMC.  A great deal has transpired in the background, and I believe it is time to involve and inform the broader membership. This journey beg...

The weather forecast was originally for rain, so we expected to be making more use of the hut, but by the time the long weekend arrived, it was sunny and warm with just a little snow on the ground.
