Membership Agreement

As a member of the Grant MacEwan Mountain Club (the "Club") I agree to be prepared physically, have safe and adequate equipment, and have the appropriate outdoor skills to participate safely at the level of difficulty of any club activity in which I choose to participate.

I understand that certain types of Club outings require the completion of specific basic skills courses as a prerequisite for participation in such outings and these courses must be taught by qualified instructors recognized by the Club. These courses include:

  • Basic Avalanche Safety for all back country ski trips
  • Basic Crevasse Rescue for all trips requiring glacier travel
  • Basic Rock for all rock climbing trips
  • Basic Snow and Ice for all mountaineering trips

I understand experience and technical skills are required for participation in intermediate and advanced Club outings.

I recognize and acknowledge that all back country trips are inherently dangerous and that debilitating injuries and death can occur from such activities. I further acknowledge that I am responsible for my own safety at all times on club outings.

I acknowledge that I will abide by the Club Safety Bylaws. I understand that Club outings are only open to club members in good standing. I further agree to read and sign a waiver and assumption of risk agreement form for outdoor activities in which I wish to participate and for which the Safety Chair deems such form to be necessary.

I acknowledge that trip coordinators and leaders are volunteers and amateurs in outdoor recreation and may have varying levels of outdoor skills and experience. I further acknowledge that they are not qualified as instructors or guides, and that the Club is not a guiding service and that all outings are a common adventure situation.
