Upcoming GMMC Meeting:

January 20th, 2021 @ 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Hello GMMC Members, we are excited to announce that we will be hosting our first virtual meeting January 20, 2021 via Zoom! Please register via the calendar and if you are interested in presenting photos from your trips please send an email to programs@gmmc.ca. (Link to be provided closer to the date)

We will start the New Year and first ever virtual meeting in GMMC history with club business and updates followed by a great presentation. Bozena is looking for some musicians as well for live music.

Our first presenter of the year will be Frances Wallace who, in 2017, after spending the past 8 years in the books becoming a lawyer, took the next logical step. She bought two horses and set off across the Mongolian Steppe. In this talk, Frances will share her ride – the roots of the idea, the preparations (or lack thereof), the successes and failures, and the unusual relationship she developed with the sound of Malcolm Gladwell’s voice along the way.

About Us

The Grant MacEwan Mountain Club** offers a wide range of trips throughout the year, as well as courses, workshops and social events to people wanting to get outside and explore the mountains.

We are a group of outdoor enthusiasts, based in Edmonton, Alberta, who organize trips for our members to enjoy activities such as hiking, backpacking, rock and ice climbing, mountaineering, backcountry skiing, and snowshoeing together.

There are no special prerequisites to join, and activities are available for all skill levels from beginner to advanced. The club is not a commercial enterprise and does not offer guided trips as it is managed by dedicated volunteers.

The Club strives to provide fun and memorable experiences for our members, with a strong emphasis on safety.

GMMC is a member of the Alberta Hiking Association and the Alpine Club of Canada.
