Information For Participants

Guided Courses Information

The BCMC strongly recommends that all participants verify the certifications of their Guided Instructors. Additionally, here is an overview on ACMG Mountain Guides.

Winter Trip Safety Standards

For winter trips and trips exposed to avalanche risk, the BCMC standard is for all trip participants to have the essential safety gear (avalanche transceiver, metal shovel, probe) and relevant avalanche safety skills (bare minimum:  AST 1 or companion rescue skills).


30-Day Guest Membership

See what the BCMC is about, join club trips, and meet others interested outdoor pursuits such as hiking, rock climbing, mountaineering, snowshoeing, and skiing: join as a Guest Member.

Members-Only Partner List

If you're already a BCMC member and looking for way to meet partners for privately planned trips, then check out the club's members-only Partner List. NOTE: these trips are not BCMC trips; it is the responsibility of each participant to assess the trip's potential risks and join at their own discretion.

Trip Organizer Perks

For those BCMC members keen to organize club trips, there is an annual PRO DISCOUNT DEAL with up to 50% savings on outdoor gear being offered to those who have organized four or more successful club trips within the previous 12 months. To learn more, visit the Membership Benefits page or email the BCMC Marketing Team.
