About us

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 our own house band, the Vibram Souls!

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