Property Maintenance: Help Us Keep a High-Quality Presence on the Mountains

As stated in  our book "The Mountaineers: A History," the oldest of the Mountaineer's ski lodges, Meany lodge, was built in 1928. The Stevens "Ski Cabin" (as it was called at the time) opened in 1948, and Baker Lodge opened in 1959. However - let's not forget our "first in the west" forest theater on the Kitsap peninsula, which was dedicated in 1926! 

Each of these properties' committee leadership would love to have the help of people looking to help maintain and enhance the locations they steward on behalf of the organization. The properties are used by our many activity leaders to help run and administer courses, by members and the public at large who want to spend a (more comfortable) night on the mountains without long commutes, as well as our Mountaineers Players and youth programs in Kitsap County! Help us maintain our longstanding presence as stewards of the outdoors, by helping with the upkeep and improvement of our properties!  Read more…

Calling all (Snow Vehicle) Mechanics - Meany Lodge

As most experienced Meanyites know, in winter, the only fashionable motorized way into the lodge is with our Sno-Cats. Our veteran, "Tom Cat," hauls equipment and guests. "Moose" is our snow mover, used to make sure we can get to the lodge when the dumps happen. We also have two snowmobiles and an antique Dodge Power Wagon. As with all machines, they need regular repair and maintenance. If you have expertise to lend us in keeping these vehicles running well, we would love to welcome you to Meany Lodge! Read more…
