Listed below you will find a wide array of outings sponsored by WTC and other Sierra Club entities. These trips fall into the following categories:
Each of our listed trips is rated by an outings classification. The Angeles Chapter Safety Committee has established these classifications for outings in order to give participants an idea of the different levels and areas of skill needed for the trip. These classifications do not relate to strenuousness.
Most WTC students will find the non-restricted outings within their abilities. When selecting a trip read the description carefully and contact the leader for additional information. Consider the distance, elevation, duration, and destination, then contact the leader listed in the trip description. Remember that “M” level trips are a bit more technical than those you took during WTC. Trip leaders will select participants that match up well to the trip.
To reserve your place on an outing, send the leader two 9.5 x 4 inch self-addressed stamped envelopes (sases) or email as specified in the trip description. Include an information sheet with the following information: your name, address, home & work phone numbers, your WTC leader’s name, the outing you wish to join, your experience, your physical conditioning program and whether you need or can offer a ride.
As the outing approaches, the leader will send you an itinerary and a list of participants so that you can arrange your own carpool. The leader will state whether there are any permit fees you must share. If permit fees are required, please send a check payable to the leader for your portion. These fees are not refundable if you cancel and your place cannot be filled.
These outings fill up early! Plan ahead and reserve a place. If you must cancel, please notify the leader as soon as possible so another student who wants to graduate can take your spot. Remember to take your Student Record Card with you on the outing so the leader can sign it for you.
Participation in WTC outings may be denied by leaders for legitimate reasons. The leaders are responsible for the safe and enjoyable conduct of these outings, and will use their best judgment in selecting participants.
