Grant Macewan Mountain club
The Grant MacEwan Mountain Club** offers a wide range of trips throughout the year, as well as courses, workshops and social events to people wanting to get outside and explore the mountains.
We are a group of outdoor enthusiasts, based in Edmonton, Alberta, who organize trips for our members to enjoy activities such as hiking, backpacking, rock and ice climbing, mountaineering, backcountry skiing, and snowshoeing together.
There are no special prerequisites to join, and activities are available for all skill levels from beginner to advanced. The club is not a commercial enterprise and does not offer guided trips as it is managed by dedicated volunteers.
The Club strives to provide fun and memorable experiences for our members, with a strong emphasis on safety.
Our members come from all walks of life. We welcome members from all backgrounds, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes our club stronger. If you share our enthusiasm for adventure, you will find a home with the GMMC.
