2015 Year of the Mountaineer


Year of the Mountaineer emphasizes the role of mountaineering in the Colorado Mountain Club’s past, present, and future. Created by passionate CMC members, the 2015 Year of the Mountaineer statewide initiative will host a number of events designed to motivate and engage mountaineers from every skill level.


From a broad series of guided hikes in celebration of Rocky Mountain National Park’s centennial year to global adventures of the World Summit Series, Year of the Mountaineer will be sure to inspire the mountaineer in all of us. From September 2014 to September 2015, the CMC looks forward to offering Club members and the public a range of events that celebrate CMC’s century-old passion for the mountains.


Rocky Mountain National Park Centennial

Discover the Park...Go Beyond the Asphalt

Join in the celebration! Officially kicking off in September 2014, CMC is celebrating the RMNP Centennial by offering member-led climbs of 100 of the 125 named peaks, hike packages totaling 100 miles in the Park, and Colorado Native Plant Master wildflower hikes in the summer of 2015. CMC members played a significant role in 1915 in the designation of RMNP as a national park. And now, because of CMC’s unique involvement 100 years ago, we are ready to celebrate the RMNP’s Centennial in CMC style. Learn more...
