Ski Trips - 2018


We are pleased to present our trip line-up for the 2018 ski season, with western trips to Colorado and the Canadian Rockies and eastern trips to Québec and West Virginia.

As of July 28, the Snowmass trip is full and there are only two slots left for Banff (one single male & one single female). We've established waiting lists for both the Snowmass and Banff trips, which you can sign up for online via a link on the trip registration pages, or by contacting the respective trip captains; see the trip listings below.

Registration is open for the Québec City and Snowshoe trips with plenty of slots still available.

You can sign up for our ski trips online through the listings below, in person at one of our regular meetings, or by mail at the address indicated in the trip flyer.
