Are you dreaming of outdoor adventures or looking to improve your skills? The Olympia Mountaineers can help get you on your way. Join us on January 2, 2020 for our annual Winter Open House. You can meet representatives from our courses and activities who will answer your questions about what it takes to get started, the gear you will need, course schedules, expectations, benefits, and more!

The Annual Open House is our chance to show the community who we are and what we do. All activities are represented with an informational display table and friendly Mountaineers to talk with Open House guests. You don't need to RSVP to attend (but you can if you want), and we invite you to scroll down to find out how you can volunteer to help out!
