Welcome to the Canterbury Mountaineering Club - for information on what's happening in the hills or on the flat.

Club Meeting - Thursday 21st September 7:30pm
Upstairs @ Pioneer Recreation Centre

Mike Brown - Adaptdefying
Mike's seen more than his fair share of challenge and discomfort in his 39 years.  If it's not in the mountains, it's sailing across oceans, or working in deadly environments.  His most recent challenge forced him to dig deeper than ever.  This challenge is what Mike calls adaptdefying - the challenge to once again experience freedom in the outdoors.

7:30pm Thursday 21st September- Upstairs at the Pioneer Recreation Centre

Upcoming Club Meetings - NZ Mountain Film Festival National Tour - Christchurch Screening

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 8pm 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.
