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"
