RA SKI & OUTDOOR CLUB


DOWNHILL  |  CROSS-COUNTRY  |  SNOWSHOE  |  CYCLING  |  HIKE  |  GOLF  |  SOCIALS


“More than just a ski club” is the motto the RA Ski & Outdoor Club lives by.  This well organized, year-round Club offers a warm welcome to new members with events such as new member pubs and a variety of ski outings where trip leaders help skiers match up with others of similar ability. The RA Ski & Outdoor Club provides programs and services to cross country and downhill skiers as well as snowboarders and snowshoers. The SkiFIT training program which help skiers get their legs ready for the slopes and trails is a pre-season highlight. During the season, join day, weekend, and weeklong ski trips to popular downhill and cross country sites. Year-round socials, and activities such as hikes and bike trips, are also the mainstay of the club. Excellent member discounts offered by local resorts and ski shops provide more than enough savings to pay for your membership.
