The Yukon Section was established in 2011, the 20th section of the ACC. Based in Whitehorse, the section brings together outdoor-minded people under a common banner to share experiences and enthusiasm, and to explore the natural beauty the Yukon has to offer. As members of a local section of The Alpine Club of Canada, Yukoners will be able to participate in free local activities, pursue skills development, and help preserve access to the territory’s unique recreational resources, which include Mount Logan, the highest peak in Canada and second highest in North America. The Yukon Section communicates with its members through Facebook.

Membership Rates

A $5 discount on the above rates will apply if a Section Membership is purchased at the same time as a National Membership. 

Huts And Other Activities

The Yukon Section makes regular use of the Stellar Hut, located in Haines Junction, as a base for hiking and skiing outings. The section does not operate the hut, but members get a reduced rate. Members also receive a 5% discount at Up North Adventures.

Trip Schedule

In the summer months the section is very active in rock climbing, running a weekly session at the Rock Gardens for fun and teaching. There are also opportunities for weekend rock climbing outings. In the winter, members keep busy with ski mountaineering and ice climbing trips, many of which teach skills to new members. Regular climbing evenings are held at Equinox climbing gym. We offer trips and courses for all skill levels, from novice to expert.
