Colorado Mountain Club

Rugged Outdoorsperson



The Colorado Mountain Club is the Rocky Mountain community for mountaincraft education, adventure, and conservation. We exist to bring people together and share our love of the mountains—and community. From the uninitiated to the expert, there is a place for everyone here.

Founded in 1912, the CMC has built a legacy of responsible outdoor leadership and ethics, paired with a healthy spirit of adventure. Our heart beats from historic headquarters in Golden, Colorado, where we’re constantly fueled by the time we spend—and the experiences we share—in the wilderness.

Our peer-to-peer, skill-progression approach forges human connections, fosters mentorship, and turns aspirations into realities. We share knowledge and give support to advance our abilities, build confidence, and pass on these experiences to inspire the next generation.

Conservation and stewardship are woven into our history and identity. Our work in conservation dates back to the creation of Rocky Mountain National Park. With greater significance than ever before, we are determined to pass down pristine wilderness and a stable climate with clean air and water.
