Charlotte Ski and Snowboard Club: About
Not everything with the Charlotte Ski and Snowboard Club is headed downhill! Sometimes it‘s cross country; sometimes it‘s snow boarding, canoeing, hiking, and sometimes it‘s sailing—but it‘s always fun!
Throughout the season, the club sponsors ski trips to the western part of the U.S., Canada, New England, and even Europe. Most of these trips are value priced and all offer a great opportunity to experience some of the greatest snow skiing in world! These outings offer an opportunity to visit beautiful terrain with spectacular views in the company of a very friendly group of people. For those in the expert class (or who enjoy the agony of defeat) the club sponsors a race team which competes with other area ski clubs for the annual right to claim “King of the Hill.”
The Charlotte Ski and Snowboard Club is a year-round, sports-oriented organization, which schedules a variety of outdoor events for the benefit of members, Such activities include: snow skiing, snow boarding, white water rafting, bicycle trips, scuba diving trips to the Caribbean, tennis, golf, hiking, canoeing, roller blading, and volleyball— just to name a few. If you are not into skiing or boarding, but enjoy active sports in the company of friendly people, our club has an activity suited to your tastes and is always looking for new ideas. You don‘t have to be an expert skier to enjoy the Charlotte Ski and Snowboard Club. Members range in prowess from expert to beginners, first-timers who would rather be in the lodge sifting by the fire. The organization sponsors a Dry Land Ski School each year to teach the basics of skiing so that beginners know how to put on their skis, understand how to get on and off the lift, and are familiar with the basic rules of skiing etiquette before being thrust into the crowd at the top the mountain.
The Charlotte Ski and Snowboard Club is a community-minded organization, capable of mobilizing large numbers of volunteers to assist in such activities. During September, many cyclists from the club raise funds to participate in the Greater Carolina‘s Chapter of Multiple Sclerosis Breakaway to the Beach Bicycle Ride. We also maintain an aid and lunch station at the half-way point.
The Charlotte Ski and Snowboard Club is a social organization. Each year we sponsor many social activities such as the Holiday Party Semi-Formal Dance, as well as various other dances and parties where members meet and often enjoy a great DJ or live band. As if these organized activities weren‘t enough, our group also has less structured invitations to meet with friends once or twice a month at a favorite watering hole at a Happy Hour Socials.
