Due to the Utah legislative session, parking will be at a premium. Please consider carpooling or taking UTA bus 200 to the capitol. Parking is available in the public lots on the east side of the Capitol Complex. Refer to maps of Capitol Hill through the following link provided.

 

Join the Wasatch Mountain Club!

Become a member of the WMC as we launch our second century as custodians of our environment here in the Wasatch Front, and as active participants in backcountry skiing, backpacking, camping, canoeing, conservation persuits, canyoneering, climbing, hiking, kayaking, mountaineering, mountain biking, river rafting, road biking, socializing, snowshoeing, and multi-day adventures. If you haven’t already done so, please consider joining us at a club activity. Many of our activities are open to non-members, and our schedule is available on our website, www.wasatchmountainclub.org, as well as via our monthly publication, The Rambler, (issues go back to 1922). Check out a brief description of our history and purpose. Our annual membership dues are quite reasonable (some would say ridiculously low), so membership is not really a cost of admission to participate in an activity. WMC membership commits to a larger purpose of supporting our organized outdoor recreation community and local conservation persuits. It's easy to join us, and you can be part of a history that has come to define what makes living and playing in Utah so unique.

 

The Wasatch Mountain Club Centennial

In 2020, the WMC turns 100! We are planning a year of celebration, and there are so many ways you can participate!

  • Attend a Centennial Celebration. Key Centennial Dates (PDF) lists monthly centennial activities planned throughout the year. Key dates to mark your calendar: January 27th (The Centennial Kick-Off at the Capitol Rotunda), May 13th (the formal organization date celebration, Red Butte Gardens Orangerie), and December 5 (Closing Event/Christmas Party, Alf Engen Ski Museum, Olympic Park). 
  • Donate to the Centennial Education Endowment. The WMC is creating a lasting legacy by establishing a permanent Education Endowment at the U of U. To learn more about the endowment and donate visit Centennial Education Endowment (PDF).
  • Be a sponsor. Centennial Sponsor Levels (PDF) lists the levels of sponsorship available to support our Key Centennial Dates.
  • Purchase centennial merchandise from our Centennial Store.
  • Advertise in the Rambler. Our goal is to produce a color Rambler each month throughout the Centennial.

All ad revenue goes directly to support the Rambler publication costs. Visit Centennial Advertising Opportunities (PDF) to learn more.
  • Encourage a business owner you know to become a sponsor or to advertise in the Rambler.
