Mountain Fest is the perfect way to get motivated and learn skills for spring and summer mountain adventures. Come by and learn about everything the Club has to offer while enjoying beer, music, skills clinics, open climbing and more.

Join us for music by Caribou Mountain Collective, beer hosted by Upslope Brewing Company and get a chance to win a 2 night lodging giveaway near Winter Park by Koebel & Co. Gear demos from Arc'teryx and Tenkara USA will also be offered.

Plus, this year’s event will feature climbing in the Bouldering Bus, indoor rock climbing, free outdoor skills clinics and an expo featuring the Club’s popular hiking and mountaineering schools.

Experience free outdoor skills clinics, tours of the American Mountaineering Museum and open climbing. The highlight of the evening will be an expo featuring CMC’s popular hiking, mountaineering, fly fishing, and camping schools; our conservation program; adventure travel trips; the Youth Education Program and much more.
