What is Bergfreunde?

The purpose of Bergfreunde is to offer a wide variety of recreational sports, social activities and travel adventures for the enjoyment of our members.  Although we have evolved from a ski club in 1966, we maintain memberships in national, regional and local ski club councils.

Whether you are new to the Portland, OR / Vancouver, WA areas or have lived here your whole life, being a member in "Bergie's" is a great way to explore all the Pacific Northwest has to offer with a fun, friendly and active group. This is a place to make life long friends!

NOTE: There are a lot more details on our website for the Sports, Social, and Travel activities we offer;  Plus contact info for the Board, Coordinators, and Members. That data is available to Members only. We would love to have you Join Us!

SPRING - SUMMER- FALL ACTIVITIES

The Sports Director and Coordinators offer a pot luck dinner in the early Spring to fill the Calendar with bike, hike, walk, and paddle events. It is a great way to sign up to volunteer to lead a day trip and to meet other people who like to do your favorite sports. See all the sports we offer and how the Coordinators work under the Sports Tab.

Winter Activities

Bergfreunde members like to snowshoe and cross country or downhill ski. Watch the calendar for day trips and workshop opportunities. Get on the ski coordinators email lists for impromptu day trips  to take advantage of fresh snow.

Our adventure trip leaders also offer Winter weekend or week- long trips to ski areas with group discounts on lodging and lift tickets. Watch the Travel Tab for new trips.

Year Round Events

Our Social Activities  run year round. See the whole list under the Social Tab: Cards, Game Night, Movies, Theater and TGIFs are fun and not weather dependent! Plus the club sponsors a Monthly Social 10 months of the year- usually on the first Wednesday of the month. That is a great way to sign up for trips, meet activity coordinators and enjoy a no host meal and drinks with friends. We also host an Annual Picnic in July that is free for members and a  Holiday Party in December at a modest cost.
