Welcome to the Grant MacEwan Mountain Club! We are a group of outdoor enthusiasts, based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, who organize trips for our members so that we can enjoy hiking, backpacking, skiing, snow shoeing, climbing, and mountain biking together. Here is our brochure. Note that the meeting location in the brochure is outdated. See below for the current meeting location.
Members receive the following benefits:
The Grant MacEwan Mountain Club is a member of the Alberta Hiking Association.
The Grant MacEwan Mountain Club is not a commercial enterprise and does not offer guided trips. The club is managed by dedicated volunteers, and is not affiliated with Grant MacEwan University.
The new on-line calendar and trip sign-up section is now available!
The June newsletter is now available on the newsletter page.
Check out the user's guide for the upcoming new online calendar section of the web site.
If you haven't been receiving your GMMC Newsflash e-mails, make sure email@example.com is on your safe sender list. Check your spam folder for lost e-mails. Make sure the membership chair has your current e-mail address.
Notice regarding online signup:
Hello GMMC members! The day has finally come where we can open up our new scheduling website for online trip signup!
Please find this new feature using the following link through our current website https://www.gmmc.ca/home/calendar.
Current members should have accounts already set up. Your username should be first initial last name. For privacy reasons, we reset everybody's passwords to something random, so you will have to reset it to something memorable for you. To do this (or if you forget your password), click on the "help" link on the top left corner of the page under the login area. This will allow you to reset your password, the link will be sent to your email address on file. It seems to take anywhere from 5-30 minutes to receive this email, so don't panic! ;-) When you do login, please update your profile to add which trips you'd like to be notified about by email when they are added to the calendar, etc.
If you would like to lead a trip, we need to change your member status to "volunteer", just let the appropriate trip chair know and we will update it and give you some easy tips on posting a new trip.
New members may sign up for membership using this webpage, but until we have the e-commerce element of the website up and running, their membership will be pending payment of dues to the treasurer.
You may sign up for trips online. Most summer trips are on the calendar, but check back as more are added. If you don't see a trip from the newsletter or an email on the calendar, please email the trip leader or executive directly.
Online payments are not yet part of this website upgrade - stay tuned!!
**A note from me asking your kind favour... This is a big change; both for club culture and technologically. We know there will be glitches and errors, items needing to be addressed, and different comfort levels with the site. To give you a brief background, we chose a template for the website that is already in use for many other outdoor clubs. This was effective as it already had many of the features we would have had to build from scratch and therefore significantly more affordable. This does bring with it a few things that might look a bit funny or unnecessary: for example; receiving a waiver request when you sign up for a social event, being required to enter a birth-date (don't worry about this, we can all be 33!), or an additional household member being requested to pay $0 to complete their membership. These are default items in the programming that would take programmer hours to change, and we felt we could live with some of these oddities instead. Having said that though, if you have any questions, errors arise or concerns, I encourage you to please contact me so we can do the necessary adjustments as soon as possible. I plan to update the FAQ page on our main website with common questions!
Thanks again for your encouragement and support of this project - Happy Trails!!
Kara Little - President GMMC

Owl Prowl and Howl: June 14-16, 2013
On Tuesday evenings (usually after 6 p.m.) there is an informal gathering of climbers at Vertically Inclined Rock Gym (VIRG) for socializing and indoor climbing. If a member is planning on attending for the first time, they should contact the Climbing Chair to make arrangements to be "recognized" as there is no way to know the GMMC group other than to have us on the lookout for the new climber. Climbers of all abilties are welcome! There is a fee for climbing and gear can be rented as well. If someone would like to come and see what it is all about and just hang out, there is no charge. VIRG's address is 8523 Argyll Road in Edmonton.
