Don Carpenter, Group Chairman, welcomes you to the Fort Collins Group of the Colorado Mountain Club.

Please check out our Activity Schedule page for trips and other club activities. Guests are welcome to sign up for trips and activities. Please come and try us out!

If you decide to join us on a trip as a guest, you will need to call the trip leader to see if the trip is still open (sometimes there are participant limits). You will also need to sign a Release of Liability form. This form can be obtained from a trip leader, or on our Membership page as part of the membership application. As a guest, to find a trip leader's contact information please call Membership services at 800.633.4417.

Note that all of our leaders are trained in leadership, safety and first aid skills.

Fort Collins CMC at the Sustainable Living Fair

Fort Collins CMC is planning to have a booth at the Sustainable Living Fair this year on September 20 and 21 (Sustainable Living Fair Link). If you attend the fair, stop by and say "Hello". At the Fair we will have information on the Colorado Mountain Club and will talk to attendees about how the club is a great way to learn new skills and meet like-minded folks who like to get outdoors. Please let anyone who is considering joining the club that there is a $25 discount on new memberships at the fair.

The 15th annual Sustainable Living Fair offers a weekend of events designed to educate people of all ages and backgrounds about sustainable living practices, renewable energy, green building, green living, Yoga, natural health, social responsibility, organic & local agriculture and more. The fair presents four diverse keynote speakers, 250 exhibitors, 75 workshops, hands-on demonstrations, Family Planet with activities for all age groups, an alternative fuel vehicle showcase, a silent auction, local food, live entertainment, and a beer garden with local craft beer, wine, hard cider and mead. Go to http://www.SustainableLivingFair.org for more information on the fair.
