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 7,000 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.


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"
