Anyone wanting to become a member has to climb all 35 Catskill High Peaks and, (in a departure from the requirements of most other hiking clubs), climb Slide, Blackhead, Balsam and Panther mountains again in winter, which is defined by the Club as the period from December 21 thru March 21, inclusive.
Those who aspire to membership are invited to join the club as aspirants and to participate in the hikes the club regularly schedules to all 35 peaks in all seasons.
