Aug 13-15th: CMC trip to the Remarkables Ice & Mixed Festival
The CMC was formed on the 10th April 1925 with a membership base of around 27 adventurers. Originally formed as a tramping club, outings on the Port Hills around Christchurch, and further afield to the foothills of Canterbury were the usual activity.
The original aims of the Club have been maintained ever since – the encouragement of a love for the mountains and nature, with increased facilities for enjoying the beauties that lie in the heart of the ranges.
CMC has built huts in the Arthurs Pass, Rakaia, and Mount Cook regions, and climbing and exploration in these areas have become very popular with members.
In the modern age, the CMC is a very active club for climbers – alpine, ice & mixed, sport and trad rock climbing, and other mountain adventure activities.
Monthly Meetings: We meet every third Thursday of the month 7:30pm at Pioneer Leisure Centre, upstairs for a social chat to other members, and a talk starting 7.45pm on some climbing / outdoors / conservation topic or trip, usually accompanied by slides or movies. Prospective members are most welcome to come to some meetings to find how the club works and the benefits.
