AMC lonesome_ext_snow_mkautz.jpg After the holidays everyone is going to be looking for a little peace and quiet--and will probably need to jump-start a fitness program to boot. A gift membership to the Appalachian Mountain Club might be just the incentive to put that New Year's resolve into action. One-year memberships start at $25 for under age 30 and over age 69, and the family membership is only $60. Members receive a subscription to AMC Outdoors, an additional monthly e-newsletter, discounts on huts and programs, and savings on maps, trail guides, and outdoor gear. Membership dues also support the stewardship of more than 1,500 miles of trails and research on air quality and alpine ecosystems. And a gift membership says that you think the recipient is cool and athletic, or could be.

For more information, see the AMC web site, www.outdoors.org, or call 800-372-1758.
