Alpine Club of Canada Vancouver Section - General Info
The Alpine Club of Canada (ACC) was founded in 1906 as Canada’s national
mountaineering club. It consists of 18 sections across the country, in addition
to the National Office and Clubhouse in Canmore, Alberta.
The Vancouver Section currently has over 400 members who share a great
enthusiasm for the outdoors. Every year hundreds of people enjoy ACC-Vancouver
Section adventures. We have a comprehensive schedule of activities ranging from
family hikes and easy day trips to more strenuous mountaineering, backcountry
skiing, snowshoeing, ice climbing, and rock climbing trips. We also offer
numerous weeklong ski and climbing camps, and a variety of skills workshops. The
National Club offers reasonably priced trips, courses and camps across Canada
The public is invited to attend our monthly meetings and slideshows, starting at
7:30pm in the Floral Hall of Van Dusen Gardens (37th Avenue and Oak Street in
Vancouver) on the fourth Tuesday of each month (except July, August and
December). Trips are also open to non-member guests at the discretion of the
leader, with the
hope people will ‘try us out’ once or twice before joining.
Come explore the mountains with the ACC-Vancouver Section!
