We recognize the desire to authentically connect, not only to nature but also with each other, to strengthen community and sustain healthy environments. Our home is the mountains, they evoke our being, shape our creativity, invoke a kinder spirit and ultimately inspire us to take the initiative to do more.
The Canary Club brings together passionate people to be a part of the mountains - whether it be a ski film premier, a ski sauvage, a symposium on sustainability and art, a backcountry course for at-risk youth, a banked slalom, an avalanche safety course, etc. If it involves the mountains, inspires, connects, lets us grow, we’re in.
We carried out our first Canary Club in spring of 2019. Starting small with Canary Clubs in a few well-known locations, this is a program that will hopefully grow as we find the right local partners in more communities. Alpine Initiatives aims to help facilitate and manage these programs for start to completion with the help of our network of industry partners, media outlets and professional ambassadors. We truly believe that one initiative begets another and that ultimately time spent in the mountains can have a strong impact on the outside world.
