This is the KMC Home Page, the trail head for information about our club and Kootenay mountain adventure in general.

Are you asking yourself "Where is that webpage hidden?" Please check the
Website Map

For more information about the club visit the Club Info area. Along with membership information and what the benefits are, you'll find access to information on the Bonnington cabins, the summer hiking camps, information of scheduled trips, activities and slideshows, the archives of our newsletters and the old Kootenay Karabiner, and more. There is also a contact us page that is all about how to do just that.

The Mountain Info area has information about the Kootenay mountains, links to other outdoor clubs and organisations, pointers to good books on hiking trails in the area and other things.

A quick overview of the Club's Winter or Summer outings are available on the schedule page. For club members, full details are available from a link to the official Google Doc on the password protected Members Only Documents page. There is also a Google Doc for non-members.
