C.H.A.O.S. is Climbing, Hiking, Adventure and Outdoor Sports
Welcome, and thanks for checking out our group!
Tired of trying to convince all your friends to go hike a mountain, camp around a fire, climb a slab, ride or ski, tear up a trail? Well, so were we! We've got it all, and we're looking forward to meeting you!
Age - CHAOS is intended for adventurous people in their 20's and 30's. Our members have told us that they value attending meetups with people their own age and with similar interests, potentially forging friendships that grow beyond just posted events. The new leadership team has thus decided to maintain the original age restrictions as of July, 2013.*
What YOU can expect from C.H.A.O.S.
We're one of the most active groups in the area.
We have a diverse list of activities including:
Skiing, Snowboarding, Snowshoeing, Ice Climbing, White water rafting, kayaking, Surfing, Standup Paddleboarding, Outdoor Rock Climbing, Indoor Rock Climbing, Backpacking, Camping, Hiking, Mountain Biking, and more!
We've got lots of members, (and we typically dismiss inactive ones to keep everyone active), we've got sponsors, and we've got tons for you to do!
What WE'RE looking for in members:
Active in the group - We need YOU to want to participate, otherwise why join?
Adventurous - Try new things! We've got experts in all areas!
Expertise - Are you a white water rafting guide? A certified belay instructor? Know how to fix a mountain bike and willing to teach others? We need people like you!
Leadership - Looking to lead your own outdoor climbs? Your own hike up Mt. Washington? Know a bike trail that's tucked away from the world? We have experts and leaders but are always looking for more so we can be more active!
We hope you'll join our group and look forward to meeting you at an upcoming event!

*Regarding Age: Some original CHAOS members are now older than 40 and others will of course eventually surpass the intended age for the group. These members will always be welcome in CHAOS. Additionally, friends of current CHAOS members who attend events as guests can be given special approval to join the group in certain situations. CHAOS reserves the right to reject any membership application for those over the age limit.
