Why You Should Join Our Club

The Edmonton Section of the Alpine Club of Canada is made of everyday folk that share a common love for the outdoors and most especially the mountains.  

Whether it’s hiking, backpacking, scrambling, mountaineering, rock climbing, ice climbing, cross-country skiing or ski touring, we have an adventure to fit your level of expertise from absolute beginners to hard core experts.  Singles, couples and families too, we welcome and encourage all to share in our passion.
