Join the Colorado Mountain Club

 

 
Explore Colorado. Protect Colorado. Be Colorado.

 

We are Colorado. Founded in 1912, the Colorado Mountain Club has been on the forefront of mountaincraft in Colorado for over a century. Now boasting nearly 6,500 members across the state, we're leading the charge to ensure that responsible recreation is accessible for all Coloradans. Whether you're looking to go on your first hike, meet your next climbing partner, or prep for your next high altitude expedition, the CMC community is ready to help get you there. With over 1,700 trips and outings each year, nearly 200 educational courses and clinics, and specific interest groups for you to meet likeminded Coloradans, the CMC is your key to a mountain lifestyle.

Why the CMC?

  • Joining a community of 6,500 likeminded Coloradans to climb, hike and explore with, every day of the year.
  • Access to CMC courses like WFA, AIARE, Intro to Hiking Safety, High Altitude Mountaineering, and more.
  • Contributing to a rich legacy of conservation and advocacy for Colorado's mountains and all public lands.
  • Deep discounts on brands like Camp USA, Mountainsmith, SmartWool, HydroFlask, Big Agnes and hundreds more.
  • Check out all member benefits here.

Hear it from our members:

We think the CMC is a pretty rad Club to be a part of, but don't just take it from us–check out what our members have to say.

"The CMC has been vital to my ability to get out into the Colorado backcountry and to enjoy each trip. The people I've met through the CMC are a big part of my personal community."

"By training and teaching in the Club, I have become a much more skilled backcountry traveler. I have done things I never thought I'd do. It has changed my life."

"I have met some wonderful friends over the years through the CMC and learned much about the Colorado outdoors including the knowledge, skills and activities to fully enjoy the outdoors"
