The Glacier Mountaineering Society is a group of people dedicated to the mountain environment of Glacier National Park, Waterton National Park and the Northern Rockies of Montana and Alberta. These are places where majestic spires lord above jeweled lakes and sheer glaciated cliffs isolate colorful alpine landscapes. The Glacier Mountaineering Society grew from a group of people motivated to experience, explore and protect the varied landscapes of this region.
GMS has members of all ages and experience
levels with varied interests and objectives including
scramblers, alpinists, crag and sport climbers, and people who
just have a special love for high and wild mountain places.
All encompass the friendly atmosphere of GMS, and as one of our members enthusiastically notes, "It's a great way to meet new friends with the same interests."
The Glacier Mountaineering Society invites you to join, and come along on our next climb, participate in our next social event, or just keep up on the latest climbing routes and news in Glacier and surrounding climbing areas.
