Statement Against Racism & Hate

in the Outdoors


Statement Against Racism and Hate in the Outdoors


Colorado Mountain Club explicitly condemns racism, hate, and all systems and behavior that erode the safety of the Black Community, Indigenous Peoples, and other Communities of Color.

Incidences of hate and racism in the outdoors are not isolated to Ahmaud Arbery running in Georgia or Christian Cooper birding in New York City’s Central Park. All over the country––including right here in Colorado––people of color disproportionately face suspicion, unprovoked confrontations, and other dangers in the outdoors solely because of the color of their skin.

We must educate ourselves & our community, and work to ensure that the Black Community, Indigenous Community, & other Communities of Color have equitable access to, and feel safe and welcome recreating in Colorado's outdoors.


HAMS 2021 Cancelled


COVID-19 and CMC Programming

HAMS 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19. Our HAMS instructors have decided to focus Winter 2020/2021 on helping the 2020 students complete their coursework and graduation climb.
Therefore, there will be no new HAMS offering in 2021.
We look forward to a new HAMS class in January 2022!
