The Mountaineers Legend Award


The Mountaineers Legend Award

This lifetime achievement award recognizes volunteers who have advanced the mission of The Mountaineers in countless ways over many years.

Like the most epic mountains of the Pacific Northwest, legends are forged over many years. The Mountaineers Legend Award recognizes the exceptional individuals who have advanced our mission in countless ways, over many years. By leading courageously, giving generously, and sharing selflessly, Mountaineers Legends inspire others to become their best selves through the transformative power of the outdoor experience.

The recipient of this organization-wide award is determined by our Board President, Board Vice President, and CEO.
