Hiking – 2018

Please Review the FOUR Hiking Essentials noted at bottom and please look at separate tab “Hiking Participant’s Guide”

Note to non-members:  We welcome guests to join us in all our activities. After coming to some of our events, if you like what we do, we would expect you’ll join our club. Members can always bring guests.

May is the first month we schedule hikes for the season. Come out and hike.  Details on all scheduled hikes may be found under the “calendar” tab.  There is also a detailed description of the hike, including a general description, meeting place, meeting time, difficulty, pace, distance, elevation gain and approximate hiking time.  Be sure you are familiar with the hike description and that you are able to keep up with the group.

The hike coordinators for the 2018 hiking season are as follows:

Your club needs you to lead hikes. Pitch in and contribute.  Even if you’re not here full time or have never led a hike, contact one of the Hike Mentors  listed above.  They can show you hikes and tell you how it’s done.

All participants on any hike must sign the “Park City Mountain Sports Club – Activity Release Form” prior to commencing the hike.  A copy of this form may be found on the Club’s website under the tab “about us” and the sub-tab “forms”.
