In 1959 a group of visionary mountain rescuers met at Timberline Lodge on Oregon's Mt Hood and formed the Mountain Rescue Association. In June of 2009 we'll be back at Mt Hood celebrating our 50th anniversary.
Please join Portland Mountain Rescue at the beautiful and historic Timberline Lodge for the MRA's Spring Conference and Anniversary Gala. This year we'll be featuring a snow and ice theme so plan on spending five days on and around the glaciers and summer snowfields climbing, learning new skills, meeting fellow rescuers from around the world and honoring the MRA's history.
Portland Mountain Rescue is proud to host the 50th Anniversary, 2009 MRA Summer Conference! We hope you'll join us for this historic occasion to celebrate 50 years of saving lives through rescue and safety education.
