Information for Participants

If you're interested in becoming a BCMC Member, but are unsure what the club offers, then join as a Guest Member. You'll have 30 days to see what the BCMC is about and join club trips to meet others interested in hiking, snowshoeing, rock/ice climbing, skiing and/or mountaineering.

If you're already a BCMC member and looking for way to meet climbing and/or mountaineering partners for privately planned trips, then check out the club's members-only Partner List. Please note that member-organized 'private' trips are not monitored by the BCMC [British Columbia Mountaineering Club]. Hence it's the responsibility of each participant to assess the trip's potential risks and join at their own discretion.

For those BCMC members keen to organize club trips, there is a now 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, please visit the Membership Benefits page or email the BCMC Marketing Team.
