It’s so much more
2015 Breckenridge Ski Trip
Founded in 1934 and incorporated in 1937, the Fresno Ski Club is one of the nation’s oldest incorporated ski clubs. The club has reinvented itself, revolving with the ski industry and changing demographics of skiing and snowboarding, evolving into a vibrant active social and recreational organization during eight decades of existence.
Don’t think you have to be a pro skier to join in all the fun. After all, we’re a social club with a skiing problem! Whether you’re just getting started or well seasoned, you’ll find friends at your level and others eager to help bring your skills up to the next.
The Fresno Ski Club is known for the quality and value of their annual trips. The top shelf offerings are typically a 7 or 9 day out of state adventure to Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho or Canada. These turnkey excursions include airfare,lovely accommodations, (often times ski in ski out slope side condos). Cocktail parties, a group dinner and lunch or 1st track breakfast. In a nutshell, a huge bang for the buck with memories and friendships forged for a lifetime.
A little closer to home, Tahoe beckons our bus full of anxious trailblazers. 3 resorts in 3 days. Casino lodging, bus transportation, cocktail parties and tons of camaraderie.
We are also very proud of our philanthropic endeavors. For nearly 40 years our club has organized and hosted its annual ski swap and sale. Families on a budget have been able to outfit their entire household in used ski equipment and bargain priced new gear. Much of the proceeds generated from our swap is donated to our friends at Special Olympics and Central California Adaptive Sports Center. In fact we recently bestowed a $3000 timing device to Special Olympics that has become an essential part of their racing program. For Central California Adaptive Sports Center we purchased some tandem kayaks for their summer program. Toys for Tots and Help a Hero is also on our list.
If you ski, board, boat ,RV, golf, hike, bike, travel or just like to socialize we would love to see you at our next meeting.
