Chinook Outdoor Club


Based in Lethbridge, Alberta, the Chinook Outdoor Club or COC organizes full day trips for its members to hike, scramble, cycle, back-country ski, telemark and snowshoe in the Southern Alberta Rockies. Our destinations include Waterton National Park, Glacier National Park (Montana), the Castle River drainage, the Crowsnest Pass and the Upper Oldman River area. We ask that participants in our COC outings be well-equipped for the mountains, and fit and able to hike or ski for up to eight hours. Since 1971, Chinook Outdoor Club members have been exploring the hills and mountains to the west of Lethbridge. Our active, hardcore COC members are generally over forty – with a few younger exceptions – and we go to the mountains every Saturday or Sunday. The Chinook Outdoor Club would love to share its knowledge of the local mountains with new members. COC invites newcomers to participate in one or two outings as guests, to see if you like what we are doing.
