The Association for Mountain Parks Protection & Enjoyment is a non-profit advocacy organization. AMPPE is funded primarily through membership fees, which help achieve our goals.

AMPPE brings more than 20 years of experience in supporting service providers and mountain recreationalists to achieve a balance in sustainable tourism resulting in positive visitor experiences for all mountain park patrons. We have been recognized at all levels of government as an innovative catalyst, working to find resolutions for the good of the environment, tourism providers, local recreationalists and international tourists alike.
