We're back! The Foothills Backpacking Committee's Backpackers' Pajama Parties helped many of us stay sane during the early days of quarantine, and many of you have told us you want more. We're happy to announce our 2021 lineup, sure to keep you entertained while we wait for the summer season to arrive.

Held on Friday evenings, these events offer photos, maps, and logistics information to help backpackers plan their future trips in our fair state (and nearby!). In 2020 we had the opportunity to host 10 speakers, presenting on routes and areas like  the Spider Gap Loop, Section J of the PCT, Stevens Pass, Snoqualmie Pass, the Olympic Coast, Cape Alava, and much more. Some of these presentations attracted over 250 attendees!

Our 2021 series will begin Friday, January 29 and will continue with bi-weekly events as long as we have interested speakers to present. Presentations are typically one hour with time for a Q&A after. All events are held via Zoom, presented by backpackers from The Mountaineers community, and open to the public.
