We are a group of outdoor enthusiasts, based in Edmonton, Alberta, who organize trips for our members so that we can enjoy hiking, backpacking, climbing, skiing, snow shoeing, mountaineering, and mountain biking together.

The club averages around 200 members. There are no special prerequisites to join, and there are activities available for all skill levels, from beginner to advanced.

The Grant MacEwan Mountain Club (we are not affiliated with MacEwan University) offers a wide range of trips throughout the year, as well as courses, workshops and social events. Trip leaders are volunteers from within the club.

There is a strong emphasis on safety, and some trips require the completion of specific courses, such as Avalanche Skills Training 1, in order to participate. Participants are required to sign a waiver and assumption of risk agreement for each trip.

Members are responsible for assessing their own ability level and choosing trips accordingly.

We have a focus on respect and concern for the natural environment.


The newsletter of the GMMC is called Mountain High. A new issue is produced every month and is published on this site about a week before the monthly general meetings.
