One of the best things about belonging to a ski club is taking advantage of group trips offered to places you might not visit on your own – and the chance to make many new friends! There is nothing like an active trip spent with like minded people to expand your social horizons and well being. Clubs travel by carpools, buses, trains, and airplanes. Adventure awaits: you just need to take advantage of the opportunities offered!
This trip list shows the trips that our clubs are offering for the coming year. Please note that dates may vary.
