Come learn safety in mountaineering with the Pikes Peak Group on one of two tracks in Basic Mountaineering School (BMS). The Pikes Peak Group BMS program offers both a technical track, focused on Rock Climbing, Alpine Snow Mountaineering and Ice Climbing, as well as a Wilderness Trekking track. Classroom sessions are offered in Colorado Springs with field sessions in and near the Colorado Springs area.
The 2012 schedule includes five classes: Wilderness Fundamentals, Wilderness Navigation, Colorado Alpine Snow Mountaineering, Colorado Rock Climbing and Wilderness Backpacking. The sixth class of the BMS series - Colorado Ice Climbing - is taken as the final module in the winter of the following year.
Registration will be available soon and this program fills quickly! There are no pre-requisites to the Pikes Peak Group BMS program.
For further information please contact BMS Directors Collin Powers at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dave Anderson at email@example.com.

On November 14th the Colorado Mountain Club’s (CMC) Youth Education program teamed up with REI to bring our mountain weather and climbing class to a group of 5th graders from Stedman Elementary in Denver. The Youth Education program reaches over 5,000 students each year through a variety of experiential education programs. We have been lucky enough to work with REI Denver to use their climbing wall in an effort to reach schools who would be otherwise unable to make it all the way out to our headquarters in Golden, Colorado.
If you like the work that we're doing or what to help, then contact us! CMC’s Youth Education Program (YEP) relies heavily on our dedicated volunteers. For more information on volunteering with YEP contact Ryan Johns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
