Mountain High Snowsport Club
  PO Box 2182, Portland, OR 97208


The old "Edgeset" ski club logo.


Mountain High's roots go back to the 1970s with the formation of the "Plaza" (1975) and "Edgeset" (early 1970s) ski clubs in Portland, Oregon. In the Fall of 2000, the two clubs merged, forming the best of both worlds. The club was renamed: Mountain High in November 2003.



We are a friendly group of about 300 skiers and snowboarders in the Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington area. We are known as "the  club that REALLY skis & rides". We have day outings to Mt. Hood, and longer ski trips. We also have year-round social activities! It's a warm & friendly club. Click for more detailed information about the club and a personal invitation to join.
