In the 1920’s adventurous Mountaineers scouted an 18+ mile ski route between their two mountain lodges in Snoqualmie Pass and Stampede Pass. In 1930, they inaugurated a race over this route with 12 years of competition. In 2014, for the first time since 1941, the Patrol Race was reborn!
Only fully discovered in 2011, the Sandy Glacier Caves on Mount Hood are the largest and most extensive glacier cave system in the lower 48. Read about the adventures of three of our members who explored them.
In the mounting battle to keep public lands in public hands, certain voices have been louder than others. Here's an interview with a Forest Service Program Manager on her perspective on the public land heist.

Due to increasingly high use, the Forest Service is expanding permitted access to the Enchantments. We support their efforts to balance access while protecting the outdoor experience for generations to come.
The Mountaineers is a wonderful organization that affords people the agency to get outside in a meaningful way. I appreciate the weight placed on safety and skill building, and am continually impressed by the work of countless volunteers within The Mountaineers. The quality instruction and inspiration I receive from The Mountaineers motivates me to stay outside with them. "
