We are the Northwest Ski Club Council.
IT'S SNOWING in the Pacific Northwest as of September 19!! Winter weather advisories have been issued!
Comprised of 38 snowsport clubs in Oregon, Washington, and Hawaii, we represent over 10,000 Alpine and Nordic skiers and snowboarders, and are part of the Far West Ski Association. As you can see from the pictures, we don’t just ski – we enjoy year- round sports activities! Enjoy our website!
NWSCC has a wide variety of ski and snowboard clubs that offer something for everyone! There are clubs of all sizes, from small and intimate to large meetup groups. Many of the clubs have “club members only” activities and trips. However, as a member of the NWSCC and FWSA, there are more available to you by joining any of our clubs. Click here for a club listing by state.
All NWSCC Club members are able to:
- Join a PACRAT racing league team
- Take NWSCC-sponsored trips
- Join in Far West Ski Association trips
- Participate in activities with other clubs
- Receive special discounts from ski areas and retail shops not available to the general public.

Mark your calendar! We plan to have a special NWSCC event on November 15 for Club Presidents, Editors, and Trip Leaders to share their ideas.
The next following NWSCC event is presently scheduled for December 13, when we are planning a brand new event: "Winter Fair"! This will be a meet and greet event with industry members, club members, a big silent auction (think Christmas shopping for ski-related items!), as well as honoring NWSCC’s new Man and Woman of the Year*, and the PACRAT bib pickup night for teams. Everyone is welcome, and the event will be open to the public.
*NEW: The Far West Ski Association’s Man & Woman of the Year program is being changed so that the nominees will have their activities with their CLUB considered first, with very little emphasis on activities with FWSA! The NWSCC winners who attend the FWSA Convention to compete at the FWSA level will have one room night paid, and have a chance to win a trip to Big White Ski Resort for two! We want to celebrate by having our clubs nominate their candidates NOW so that we can honor them and announce the winners at the December 13 Winter Fair!!! The deadline is December 1 to submit your nominees to NWSCC.
The ski shows are coming!! This year Snowvana will be held October 20-21, 2017, at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum. NWSCC and PACRAT will be represented.
The SkiFever and Snowboard Show will be held November 3-5, 2017, at the Portland Expo Center. All NWSCC member clubs are invited to have a free booth, but advance reservations are necessary.
Our Industry Partners will be making Special Offers available to NWSCC club members from time to time. Go HERE to view the current offers.
All NWSCC club members are invited to participate in all Far West Ski Association trips. The Far West Ski Week will be held in Banff, Canada, February 3-10, 2018. Due to the favorable exchange rate, this will be one of the best value trips offered in years! Unsold space has been surrendered, but you can still get on a waiting list and chances are good you will get on the trip. As of 10/21 there is room for a single man. Racing, meals, parties, and lots of extras are included. For details click HERE to download the flier.
