Club publications stretch back to the founding of the club as The Kootenay Section of the Alpine Club of Canada. The Kootenay Karabiner was the yearly (twice yearly in the first few years) Journal of the club’s activities. They are very interesting reading.
The club has been producing the Kootenay Mountaineer newsletter for almost as long. Published more often than the Karabiner, it is only since the 2002 issues that we have PDF copies.
Note: The Karabiner and Mountaineer links are all links to PDF documents that will start to download. The Karabiners can be quite large.
