Joining ACC Whistler

Become a member

The Whistler Section is one of 17 regional sections that make up the Alpine Club of Canada, Canada’s national mountaineering organization. We welcome all those who enjoy and love to recreate in the mountains.

Whether you like to climb cliffs, frozen waterfalls, mountains, or hike, backcountry ski or perhaps have an interest in preserving the mountain environment, we encourage you to join us. We are a club suitable for members of all ages and abilities.

If doesn’t matter if you are a new to mountain sports or if you have many years of experience. We are welcoming, supportive, and love meeting new people.

How to join

The Whistler Section of the ACC is a local chapter of the Alpine Club of Canada, Canada’s national mountaineering organization. When you join the club you become a member of both the National ACC and a local section.

  • Step 1. Go here and select the type of membership you want.
  • Step 2. Follow the wizard, making sure you select Whistler as your Primary Section. Please note that if you choose to join another section (for example, Vancouver), there is an additional cost. Some people like to belong to several sections. Don’t feel you have to.
  • Step 3. Pay online with a credit card and voila! Welcome to ACC Whistler. We’re happy to have you join us on our adventures.
