Cascade Prime Timers is a non-profit organization of active adults fifty years of age and over who enjoy the camaraderie of downhill skiing, x-country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, kayaking, biking and other activities with friends who share a spirit of adventure. We recognize and promote the benefits of recreational activities and mental stimulation for a healthy and enjoyable life style.

Cascade Prime Timers is run totally by volunteers. We have no office or telephone. On the last Monday of January, February, March, June, September and October there is a Social evening with a guest speaker, hors d'oeuvres, and no-host bar where we catch up with each other and keep up to date with current club news. The club publishes an informative newsletter (on line) 6 times a year. Prospective members are always welcome at one of our socials or, by invitation, to one of our activities to see us in action.

We originally started as a ski club, we have branched out and now offer many more year around activities. Winter activities include Downhill (alpine), Nordic (cross country) and snowshoe. The summer program includes hiking on Fridays, Rambles on Mondays, camp outs, kayak/canoe and an annual picnic. Our club has several informal groups such as an ethnic dinner group and bridge group. We have overnight trips, local and international year-round.

We are a Membership club. Club trips and events are provided only for Cascade Prime Timer members exclusively. Membership in Cascade Prime Timers (CPT) additionally includes membership with Far West Ski Association and The North West Ski Club Council, both of which run a variety of winter and summer activities in which our members are welcome to participate. The club's membership year runs from May 1st to April 30th.

Members pay annual dues which finance our non-trip activities. -- Our application for Tax Exempt Status and our non-profit Tax returns are available for public inspection by contacting our club President--

We contribute a portion of our dues to worthwhile groups that support snow and non-snow activities.
