Member Benefits


When you join the Colorado Mountain Club, you get many outstanding discounts and benefits!




 TRIPS      FREE access to over 3,000 separate mountain adventures annually, ranging from easy day hikes and snowshoe trips, to peak climbs, cross-country, and downhill ski trips, to long day walks. Carpooling is encouraged to keep travel costs down.
 SCHOOLS     Access to back-country classes and seminars offered by various CMC groups. Training in mountaineering, backpacking, and cross-country skiing are examples of the skills members can gain by taking group-sponsored schools.
 SOCIAL Opportunity to socialize with 7500 like-minded Coloradans interested in outdoor, non-motorized recreation.
 HUTS Access to CMC-maintained back country huts. Hosted and maintained by the Boulder and Shining Mountain Groups, two huts are available for member use on a reservation basis, one on a first-come, first-served basis.
 PUBLICATIONS     Free membership magazine: Trail & Timberline, CMC's hallmark news and information magazine, is published quarterly and is online on the CMC website. For a low subscription fee, you can receive special interest newsletters covering high altitude mountaineering and rock climbing. Some groups publish a Group newsletter.
 BOOKS Discounts on all CMC Press books. Our growing collection of publications includes guide books for Colorado and beyond, conservation texts, and children's books.
Travel to favorite foreign destinations through our Adventure Travel program. CMC-sponsored world-wide trips are generally priced far below those offered by commercial, for-profit outfitters.
 Access to Adult Education courses with fellow members. Arranged by CMC's Education Director, classes are offered both in Golden at the American Mountaineering Center and in remote locations around the state and nation.
