This month, the Boulder, Denver, Fort Collins, Pikes Peak, and Shining Mountains Groups have exciting guest speakers, diverse topics, and delicious food at this year's annual dinners. And the public is welcome to join all CMC members, so bring a friend to join the CMC family for food and festivities! Here's a sampling of what each dinner will offer. Visit www.cmc.org for more information.
Our speaker this year is an important figure in Colorado mountaineering history, and a former CMC member and trip leader. Howard Snyder led the 1967 Colorado McKinley Expedition and reached the summit along with fellow Coloradans Paul Schlichter and Jerry Lewis. They were forced by the U.S. National Park Service to combine with a group from Seattle for the climb, with fatal consequences. The disastrous expedition, one of the most controversial in North American mountaineering history, was chronicled in the 2007 book Forever on the Mountain by James Tabor, and in Howard’s own 1973 book, The Hall of the Mountain King.

Join the Pikes Peak Group for our annual dinner and presentation! Bill Slaughter will be presenting "Tour du Mont Blanc." It's a great way to meet old friends that you have shared time on the trail with, but only see the back their heads or hurried ahead of them because you are the strongest in the pack. Now, for one evening, you can relax and watch a program that will bring delightful memories of a past exhibition or a future dream.
