Join the Colorado Mountain Club Today

Online Application

Founded in 1912 and designed to unite adventure, education and preservation, we represent the Colorado lifestyle and everything that is great about Colorado.

Our mission is to unite the interest and knowledge of students, explorers and lovers of the mountains; collect and distribute Rocky Mountain information representing science, literature, art, and recreation; stimulate public awareness and interest in Colorado, encourage environmental preservation; and make our beautiful, alpine attractions available to all.

As a CMC member, you can hike or climb nearly every day of the week, learn new outdoor skills or hone those you already have, attend a conservation program, help build a new hiking trail or maintain an old one, take a class in geology or botany, enjoy our CMC publications. You can also purchase items from the shop with a 20% member discount.

Member Benefits

When you join the Colorado Mountain Club, not only will you receive Member benefits, but our mountains will benefit, too! How? Our Conservation Department works tirelessly to preserve quiet open spaces.

New Partner Benefits - CMC members now enjoy benefits with our sister organizations across the country. See Partner Benefits to take advantage of this opportunity.

CMC Groups

The Colorado Mountain Club is organized into local Groups. When you join the Club, you join one of the local groups. There is even a group for members who live outside the state of Colorado, called Friends of Colorado.

Your local group will provide the majority of Club services that you receive. All activities of any group are open to all CMC members regardless of group affiliation.
