Bay Area Mountaineering Meetup (BAMM)

Meet people who are interested in mountaineering, backcountry skiing/snowboarding, alpine climbing, rock climbing, trekking, backpacking, or simply day-hiking in the mountains. Whether you are currently training for a climb, planning your next one, or just looking to get into the sport, this is a great way to meet people of all experience levels. We do a mix of local meetups as well as trips all around the Sierra, California and the world. We are 100% non-commercial and simply dedicated to getting out to the mountains with good friends.

There are so many great mountains calling in California... let's go!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
