What is NWSCC?

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.
