 VRCG Membership Benefits

VRCG is a registered not-for-profit (S-0061792), meaning we try to make as much profit as possible, but the profit doesn’t go to the directors/exec for their personal beer fund but go to VRCG programs, club gear and operation costs. Everyone in the club (including exec.) pays membership.

$30 goes:

– $10 to Federation of Mountain Club BC (a registered charity) to support their charity work to advocate for safe, self-propelled activities and the protection of BC’s backcountry.

– ~$7.50 to club insurance

– $1.17 PayPal fee

– the rest goes to programs and club gear (e.g. ropes, ice tools, etc.)




Thanks to our amazing Climbing Leaders, we have an average of 385 trips/year. Trips of all sorts, meet climbing partners, instructional trainings, rock, snow, ice,  alpine expeditions and amazing parties. Our mission is to benefit climbers of all levels. If you are an experienced climber, you get to meet other super stoked climbers and crank even harder. If you are a new climber, you can attend instructional training, learn from scratch from indoor to rock, snow, ice climbing.
