Interested in learning how to snowshoe, kayak, or navigate in the backcountry? Want to meet some new exploration buddies? Have a gear wishlist a mile long, or have some extra gear you'd like to unload? Come to The Mountaineers Seattle Program Center from 6-8:30pm on Monday, September 21!

INFORMATION SESSION

We will be leading a special 40-minute Intro to The Mountaineers info session at at 6:30pm. It's a great place to start your evening and learn more about who we are and what we do. You'll get an overview of The Mountaineers history and a look at what we do today, and how you can get outside with us. Come down to find out more about us and how to get involved. RSVP today!

Meet OUR Volunteer Leaders

Representatives from each of our activity committees will be on hand to answer all of your burning questions about courses and upcoming events. We're just about to launch into our course season, and with everything from hiking to sailing, climbing to skiing, and kayaking to first aid, The Mountaineers can surely offer you new ways to get outside.

This open house style event gives you a chance to ask questions and find out what's right for you. With 10,000+ passionate members in our active community, we really do have something for everyone.

GEAR GRAB

Visitors will also have special access to our Gear Grab, where anyone can buy or sell gently used gear. Mountaineers and members of our active community come and sell all sorts of stuff. You may not find exactly what you need, but you may go home with something you didn't know you'd need, and you'll definitely find a treasure-trove of cool, old outdoor gear.

WANT TO BE A SELLER?  

Email info@mountaineers.org with your name and how much space (in total feet on a table display) you think you'll need. And act fast - anyone can sell but space is limited. Assure your spot by RSVPing here as well. 

PLEASE NOTE WE ENCOURAGE 10% OF PROCEEDS FROM GEAR SALES TO BE DONATED TO THE MOUNTAINEERS (WE HAVE A FORM THAT MAKES THIS VERY EASY THAT SELLERS CAN FILL OUT AT THE END OF THE NIGHT). 

Climb for Free

The climbing wall will be open all evening and staffed by our climbing committee - so don’t worry about bringing a harness or belaying just come ready to climb!

Buy Books

The Mountaineers Bookstore will be open late as well. If you're a member, you always save 20% on our books and USGS maps. This is the perfect opportunity to snag a great read or instructional guide.
