Our Mission: The Ponderosa Community Club's mission is to create and maintain a safe and welcoming community which enhances recreational and residential living through active membership participation, visionary leadership, and commitment to sustainability and harmony with the natural environment.
The Ponderosa is our mountain retreat. It’s our escape from urban living and busy work-a-day world. The Ponderosa offers members a “time out” to unplug, relax, recreate, spend time with family and friends and enjoy the sunshine, natural beauty and wildlife of the eastern Cascade Mountains.
Residents of the Ponderosa enjoy many of the benefits of city life (a state-of-the-art water system, a heated swimming pool, a state-of-the art playground & ball-field, a beautiful clubhouse, paved private roads, and a fully-signed trail system with several kilometers of excellent trails to enjoy year-round. The Ponderosa a small modern town, our little community in the mountains.

Over time we, as members, come to understand that Mountain Living comes with certain responsibilities that require our special attention – and action, including:
  • Learning how to live with the wildlife that lives in our area and the right way to “share the woods” with forest critters.
  • Taking the required steps to ensure our homes and community are safe from wildfire
  • Understanding how and when to safely recreate in our rivers and lakes
  • Recognizing our community is volunteer-powered; so we all share the responsibility to step up and volunteer as best we can to keep it running smoothly
  • Being informed and staying in touch in the Ponderosa is essential –And it’s all there in one place - on the Ponderosa Website ( Be sure to bookmark our website on your Favorites.
