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
