What we're about

Hello & Welcome!

We are about fun adventures...especially hiking adventures. :-)

So long as it's within the Pacific Northwest, you as a member are welcome to host / participate in hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, skiing, sledding, bicycling, and walking events.

There are multiple organizers in this group. Event difficulty should be listed in each posting - if you don't see a "difficulty rating", then ask in the event comments.

If you are interested in organizing events, let me know.

If a member or organizer behaves unethically or inappropriately, please notify me.

Presentation: Hiking the Italian Dolomites!

The Mountaineers

Mountaineer Peter Hendrickson will tell of trekking five stages of Italy’s Alta Via Due through the Dolomites. In addition to his photos, Peter will talk about how he and his wife decided to mix Via Ferrata (cable-aided) scrambling with a five-day hike. Learn about what it takes to prepare, European travel tips, the specialized via ferrata gear, the languages, the tragic history of two world wars, the mountain huts, the food, the day-to-day stories, and the folks they encountered. Tickets are $10 for Mountaineers members, $15 for the general public (plus a small processing fee). The ticket price includes a great selection of drinks and snacks. All proceeds benefit non-profit adult and youth programs for The Mountaineers. Get your tickets here: http://bit.ly/2T6hSJn Doors Open at 6:30pm
