Being a member of the VOC gives you many priviledges, including a variety of discounts at local and international (ok, well, maybe in the future) establishments!
Here is a list of places to check out!
- Richmond Olympic Oval (ROO) climbing wall: You go to the front desk, say you're here to climb for the day and mention that you're from the VOC. They'll look up your name to see if you're on the list, then give you the discount. You pay approximately $10, which is pretty low compared to other climbing gyms.
- Intuition Liners The best thermo-moldable ski (and mountaineering) boot liners going. Tell them you're with the VOC and they might give you a break. Legend has it that providing nude photos of yourself in outdoorsy locations can help.
- Crown Skis This up and coming local ski manufacturer has offered discounts to VOC members in the past.
- Famous Foods Famous Foods is the place to buy dried foods and ingredients for your lightweight backcountry meals in Vancouver. You should be able to get a 10% discount for large expedition purchases (> $100).
