For the Boulder Community
The Boulder Group of the Colorado Mountain Club is headquartered in a 2000 square foot Clubroom in the Table Mesa Shopping Center on Broadway in South Boulder (go north behind the Neptune Mountaineering store on the upper level). In our Clubroom we offer numerous programs, lectures and other events every month.
Our 1600 members enjoy a huge variety of hiking, backpacking, climbing and skiing activities throughout the entire year in addition to local social outings and an enjoyable Group Annual Dinner which is held every November to celebrate our members. Boulder outings run the gamut from leisurely slow-paced flower photography hikes and conservation projects to challenging high mountain summit climbs. We like to hike, ski and climb. We are friendly and we like to have fun!
For all level mountaineers, Boulder provides regular seminars in leadership, safety and First Aid. We also sponsor:
- Boulder Hiking School for people new to the Colorado mountains
- Boulder Mountaineering School (established in 1947) for members interested developing more technical mountaineering skills
- Advanced Mountaineering School for those who think they might like to tackle full-scale mountaineering expeditions
Plus there are yearly Back Country Ski Clinics and Telemark Ski Clinics, an Ice Climbing School, a Rock Leading School, and much more.
The Boulder Group also publishes the ultimate trail map of the Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks region -be sure to get yours (available at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, in the Boulder Clubroom, and at all local outdoor and mountaineering stores).
We are located at 633 South Broadway, Unit K, Boulder CO 80305
Please come and join us! Regular office hours are 5PM to 7 PM Tuesdays and Thursdays.
