WAC Virtual Events

These unprecedented times call for a new way of WAC-ing!

As you may know the Backcountry and Basic Climbing classes for the 2021 year have been canceled and though we are saddened by the loss of opportunity to engage with folks through fresh skills, we have decided to invest our time and energy into our current members. That’s you!

All Co-chairs across all WAC classes are working together for the first time in WAC history to provide club-wide events constructed to engage with all members virtually during COVID. If you are interested in continuing to learn and socialize with us in this new way, outside of the traditional WAC classes, please subscribe to our Events Mailing List to be notified of upcoming events. All WAC members are encouraged to join regardless of past class and volunteer experience.

As a sneak peak, our first two virtual events are launching this month! Check ’em out:

Interview with Wonderland Gear Exchange Co-Founder Ben Mawhinney

Tuesday November 10th at 7pm

Join us  for a “How I Built This” style interview with Ben Mawhinney, the co-founder of Wonderland Gear Exchange and WAC BCC Graduate of 2017. Wonderland Gear Exchange is a consignment shop for outdoor recreation equipment that opened in the fall of 2018 in Seattle. During this interview we will hear about successes and failures, the importance of a circular economy, and so much more! Click HERE for more information and to register for this free event.

Improve Your Ski Performance and Reduce Injuries

Tuesday November 17 @ 7pm

In preparation for the POW, we have an awesome opportunity for you to get your body ready and help prevent those potential injuries. Physical Therapists, Grant Hennington (WAC BCC ’16) and Mandie Majerus (US Ski Team PT) will show you how to evaluate, prepare and condition your body for the ski season. As part of this event, you will receive the opportunity to join their multi-week exercise program for you to lead up to ski season.

If you have been craving WAC interactions as much as myself, it may be in your best interest to bookmark our events page so you don’t miss out on any upcoming opportunities.
