About The Everett Mountaineers

The Everett Mountaineers is a branch of The Mountaineers, the premier outdoor recreation club in the Pacific Northwest.. Our volunteers offer many activities and quality courses, usually in smaller groups than the Seattle branch. (Learn about The Mountaineers). Our branch is known for its more than 100 years of camaraderie and passion for the outdoors. And we have a great history of stewardship, particularly lookout maintenance and trail work.

Sat, Nov 5th, 5pm: Annual Awards Banquet

Join us to recognize course graduates and volunteers at this year's Annual Banquet. Don't miss this rare opportunity to meet the renowned Lowell Skoog who will be presenting:

"A Living History: A Visual Perspective"


As a skier, climber, writer and photographer, Lowell has embraced the Northwest mountains since the 1960's. He founded the Northwest Mountaineering Journal website celebrating local mountain culture. He was instrumental in launching the Washington State Ski and Snowboard Museum in 2015. For over a decade, he has served, and now chairs, the Mountaineers History and Library committee, a group of volunteers that works to preserve and share our living history.

The Pacific Northwest has a rich heritage of mountain exploration, activism, literature and art. Lowell Skoog was introduced to this heritage as a Seattle youngster more than 50 years ago. In this multimedia presentation, Lowell will discuss how the threads of history continue to weave through the Northwest outdoor community to create a present that is just as rich and inspiring as our storied past.
