Joining the Manitoba Section of the Alpine Club of Canada provides you with amazing opportunities for exploration and recreation, for learning and developing new skills, and for good companionship every day that you’re involved in the Club.
You do not need to have any previous experience in the outdoors in order to join the Club. Many people join the Club to get started skiing, climbing, mountaineering or just to spend more time in the mountains. New members who already have strong outdoor skills will find themselves in good company.
A significant player on the Canadian mountaineering stage since 1906, the Club provides an enormous range of benefits and services to its members, be they avid young sport climbers or weekend alpine warriors.
