Member Club Grant Update: Mountain Mentors

Applications for Mountain Mentors’ third winter season, funded in part by an FMCBC Member Club Grant, went live on October 15, 2018. Mountain Mentors facilitates relationships for women who are seeking mentorship in backcountry skiing or splitboarding, and seeks to grow the community of female outdoor leaders in Vancouver and the Sea to Sky corridor. This year, our winter season will consist of a kickoff mingler with Whistler Blackcomb female patrollers, a mid-season hut trip, a guided instructional weekend, and a season-end party. Self-identified women ages 19+ are encouraged to apply for our program, with the cost of the season being $100 for mentees, and free for mentors. If you have any questions, please reach out to our Program Manager via email, at
