Women’s Alpine Adventure Club

A not-for-profit venture to support and inspire women in their outdoor pursuits.

We aim to support growth through adventure - building skills and confidence outside and within! We’re not building a profit making machine here, we’re talking about an inclusive, accessible club where we can all support each other. We want to make Alpine experiences available to more women all over the world, allowing them to push themselves outside their comfort zones and understand what they’re really capable of. We’d like to build a network of qualified leaders, trainee leaders, outdoor enthusiasts and outdoor beginners to all help support each other to have fun adventures in the Alps and grow fearlessly together.

Specifically focused on skills for the Alpine environment, we host winter & summer meets and will soon launch an online platform to include ‘How to’ videos, articles, interviews with amazing women and a messaging board. We hope that by focusing on Alpine skills we will be adding to the ‘women’s focused’ adventure group world and complimenting all the other inspiring projects out there.

Behind every successful woman is a few friends giving her crazy ideas and a shit load of other kick ass women.
