The Women’s Mountain Mentorship Group exists to address the underrepresentation of women in outdoor pursuits and the personal, social, cultural and other barriers that cause this reality. This is not a gender exclusive group, but we do create events that ensure women can access mentorship, partnership & learning in an environment where they are not the minority and can expect a supportive learning environment.

The Beginner Hike Series focuses on supporting fledgling mountaineers with skills and resources for safely leading easy to moderate hiking trips.

The Calgary Section of the Alpine Club of Canada is a not for profit / flow through course and trip provider. We organize courses and trips based on member demand and divide any costs that we incur between event attendees. In other words, we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
