Big City Mountaineers transforms the lives of under-resourced urban youth through wilderness mentoring expeditions that instill critical life skills. We partner with community-based youth organizations and caring adult volunteers who act as mentors in the field to help young people realize their potential. Our curriculum improves integrity, self- esteem, responsibility, decision-making abilities and communication skills in close to 1,000 youth annually.
Come climb the Grand with MtnMeister Podcast! The Grand Teton (13,770 feet) is one of the world’s most beautiful mountains. Since 1968, Jackson Hole Mountain Guides has provided mountain guiding services on the Grand and in many other locations throughout the West. Join us in undertaking this thrilling mountaineering challenge and an unforgettable experience! Our 3-day Grand Teton climb involves 14 miles round-trip, 14,000 feet of combined elevation gain and loss, extensive scrambling and fifth class (5.6) climbing on the way to the summit.
How does it work?
You pay a non-refundable registration fee & agree to fundraise $4,000 to climb the Grand Teton. BCM pays your guide fee of $1,100 (of course you can donate an additional $850 if you want all the funds you raise to go to BCM!). Then you fundraise up to your goal & spread the word about BCM, and go on an awesome climb!
