What is Your Mountain Legacy?
Man looking out at sunrise on mountain

Mountains bring us together and teach us important lessons. That's true now, and it's been true at the CMC for more than 100 years.

We believe it is our duty - each and every one of us - to pass along our passion for the mountains. With your personal commitment, the CMC will thrive in 2019 and beyond. 

Will you join us today in leaving your mountain legacy?

Featured CMC Press Book

Coloring Colorado

by Jesse Crock

Coloring Colorado features drawings of some of the state’s iconic peaks, such as Crestone Needle, Lone Eagle Peak, Mount of the Holy Cross, and the Maroon Bells. There are pastoral scenes with wildflowers and aspen trees as well as historical scenes. And there are fun drawings like the much-loved Blue Bear at the Denver Convention Center. For outdoor adventure lovers, there is mountain biking, trail running, rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering and more! This 8.5" x 11" coloring book is fun for anyone from age 3 to 93. While many people will want Coloring Colorado for themselves, it also makes a wonderful gift.

To order a copy, please visit our store or call 303-279-3080.
