Historical BackgroundReturn to Top

Founded July 19, 1894 on the summit of Mt. Hood, the Mazamas, Squamish for mountain goats, is a mountaineering organization based in Portland, Oregon. Mazama Glaciers on Mount Adams and Mount Baker as well as Mount Mazama, the collapsed volcano that formed Oregon's Crater Lake, all took their names from the pioneering group of climbers. Today, the group promotes mountaineering through education, climbing, hiking, fellowship, safety, and the protection of mountain environments, offering more than 900 hikes and 350 climbs annually for more than 13,000 participants.
