About the Federation of Mountain Clubs of BC

Through leadership, advocacy and education, the FMCBC works to protect and maintain access to backcountry areas for quality, non-motorized recreation in BC. Our membership is comprised of a diverse group of non-motorized backcountry recreationists including hikers, rock climbers, mountaineers, trail runners, kayakers, mountain bikers, backcountry skiers and snowshoers. As an organization, we believe the enjoyment of these pursuits in an unspoiled environment is a vital component to the quality of life for British Columbians.
