77 years old and still a cool place to be.
Incorporated in 1937, the Fresno Ski Club was awarded special historical recognition at the Far West Ski Association convention in 2011, as one of our nation’s oldest. We may be old, but we’re young at heart and over the years have evolved from a focus on racing into a social group who enjoy year round activities. Although snow skiing and boarding has been and always will be the glue that binds us together our members participate in hikes throughout the Sierra and Coast range, boating, waterskiing, sailing, RV’ing, wine tasting, kayaking and socializing.
But hey, it’s not just one big party. We’re also all about community service. 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. In fact we recently bestowed a $3000 timing device to their organization that has become an essential part of their racing program.
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.
Our award winning online publication, Tracks, is chock full of news, info and the goings on of our life embracing members.
