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.
The Everett Branch meets at 7 pm on the first Wednesday of each month (except July, August & December) in the Snohomish County East Admin Building (Drewell), 3000 Rockefeller Ave (Oakes and Pacific) in downtown Everett. The entrance is at the north end of the building.
Our Branch Rules provide for the election of Branch Officers in September.
The following branch officers HAVE INDICATED THAT THEY WILL SERVE ANOTHER YEAR - until September 2015:
However, if you are interested in running for one of these positions, contact Ed Andrews at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 15th.
A note from Everett Branch Chair, Matt Vadnal:
I'm sad to report that we lost an Everett Branch Mountaineer on Saturday, January 18th. Franklin Bradshaw and a companion were on Lewis Peak when a cornice collapsed and Franklin was swept down the mountain in an avalanche. A mountain Search and Rescue team - which included many Mountaineers - recovered his body at 1:00 a.m. on Sunday morning. Those of you who knew him can attest that Franklin was an accomplished mountain climber, hiker and skier who served as an instructor in many of our courses. He held the record for climbing the 100 highest peaks in Washington State in the shortest amount of time, just over four years. I recommend that everyone read the January 22nd article about Franklin on the Heraldnet website.

The Mountaineers started in 1907, and Everett had the first official branch in 1911. One of the first ascents of the branch was Whitehorse Mountain in 1913.
