Ski Trips - 2018


Most of our 2018 ski trips are now either full or past their registration deadline or both.  The exception is our early March trip to Stowe, VT, which is open for registration through February 20.

However, we sometimes have late cancellations, so if you really want to go on a trip, it never hurts to touch base with the trip captain. The Banff trip also has an online waiting list which you can access through a link on the trip registration page.

The Snowshoe, Stowe, and Banff trips are sanctioned by the Blue Ridge Ski Council. Members in good standing with any BRSC-affiliated club are eligible to sign up for these trips.

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 each trip flyer. Click on an individual trip listing to reveal more information, including links to the trip flyer, online registration, and related websites. Also, please review the policy section (below) before signing up for trips.
