MEET OUR VOLUNTEER LEADERS

Representatives from our activity committees will be on hand to answer all of your 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 14,000+ passionate members in our active community, we really do have something for everyone.

GEAR GRAB

You can also peruse our  Gear Grab, where anyone can buy or sell gently used outdoor gear. Mountaineers and members of our active community come to sell all manner of outdoor goods. 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 outdoor gear.

WANT TO BE A SELLER?  

Email garretta@mountaineers.org with your name to get on the list to sell your gently used outdoor gear (you may only sell outdoor gear; gear needs to be in reasonable shape and still safe to use). Sellers may request 1-6' table or a  1/2-6' table  to sell their times. And act fast - anyone can sell, but space is limited. Assure your spot by RSVP'ing on this page 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). 

BUY BOOKS

The Mountaineers Bookstore will be open for the duration of the Gear Grab. If you're a member, you always save 20% on our books and Green Trails maps. This is the perfect opportunity to snag a great read or instructional guide, pick up that NW Forest or Discover Pass you've been putting off buying, or load up on some Mountaineers swag.

T-shirts will be available for $2 and USGS maps are going for $1. Buy something at the Gear Grab, and we'll throw in a USGS map for free (they make the perfect gift wrap!).

COVID Considerations

As of 7/19, our Seattle Program Center does not require vaccinated people to wear masks, unless children are present in the building. We will continue following guidelines put forward by WA State. Please review the full guidance on the COVID-19 Response page, including a detailed FAQ section, in advance of attending.
