Christmas Cards

The Alpine Club have produced a new Christmas Card for 2016:

  • Sunrise on the Grandes Jorasses seen from the summit of Mont Blanc, Gabriel Loppé (1869)

    Gabriel Loppé (1825-1913) was an Honorary Member of the Alpine Club and its first French member. Although many others painted the high mountains of the Alps from afar, Loppé was the first to venture into the higher regions and even on to the summits themselves in pursuit of his art. His work has become much sought after and highly prized.

The A5 size cards are priced at £7.00 for a pack of 10 cards with envelopes, which includes a voluntary £1 donation to The Glacier Trust. The Trust works with Nepalese mountain communities to enable them to adapt and become more resilient to the effect of climate change by providing education and expertise. Your support also recognises with gratitude the excellent work and commitment of the late Alpine Club member, Robin Garton, who was founder and Director of the Trust until his untimely death in Glencoe in September 2015.

Postage costs are extra (p&p 1-2 packs £2.50; 3-4 packs £5). You can, however, save these costs by purchasing your Christmas cards at the Clubhouse, during business hours or at an evening lecture in London. Christmas cards will also be available for purchase at the Keswick AGM & Dinner.

Cards can also be purchased by email to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone: 020 7613 0755 with payment by cheque payable to: ’Alpine Club‘.
