Ski Sports Fitness Meetup is a group with a difference. Yes, like many other sports oriented Meetup groups, we want to have a great social time getting and staying healthy through the sports we participate in. But in addition to that, we also want to get better at these sports by actively taking in lessons, classes, seminars and training workshops as we believe there is always room for improvement in terms of sports related skills. This is especially true for a sport like snow skiing.
This focus will be especially apparent with our Meetup group during the winter as the founder and group organizer, Clint Cora, is a professional working downhill ski instructor certified by the Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance. With other partner Meetup groups, he has already run many ski improvement day and weekend trips for several years. And to set an example of the continuing learning philosophy, Clint still takes in ski lessons for himself each winter although he is already a CSIA Level 2 instructor who has been teaching for over 13 years and skiing for over 40!
During the off-ski season, snow skiers tend to be an active bunch so Ski Sports Fitness Meetup continues with active events which also serve to keep everyone socially connected all year round rather than just during the winter ski season. Our members have access to joint events with our partner Meetup group which features free outdoor fitness classes (boot camp, zumba, yoga) at Mississauga Celebration Square each Wednesday evening all summer long. There are also midweek nature trail hikes as well as longer weekend day trips to scenic out of town locations during the spring and autumn seasons.
Clint Cora who is also a former member of the Canadian National Karate Team and a karate world champion, brings his Total Body Stretch, Strength Training With Dumbbells and his very popular Effective Self Defense seminars to our members several times per year for FREE! In fact, most of our events will not have any event fees for our members and there will never, ever be a Meetup group membership fee at Ski Sports Fitness Meetup.
Sometimes we will get access to special instructional classes with qualified instructors in sports such as golf, kayaking and rock climbing as well as other snow sports like snowboarding.
The main theme of Ski Sports Fitness Meetup is naturally snow ski improvement during the winter and being active in other sports fitness activities for the rest of the year. Even if you are presently just a beginner skier or even somebody who has never skied before but would like to learn, we accommodate you each winter here through a special event called Discover Skiing With Clint which specifically caters to first time (or second time) snow skiers in a safe, fun environment.
Of extreme importance to us is to maintain a comfortable and safe social environment at our events for our members, especially the women. If we come across individuals who behave in a way that is not in the spirit of our group, we will not hesitate to remove them from our group.
So if you are a skier who would like to keep improving your skills or would like to try skiing in a great social setting as well as be connected all year round, Ski Sports Fitness Meetup is for you.
Disclaimer: Our ski days tend to be lessons focused so if you are looking for a group for just free skiing, our events may not be for you since pretty well all skiers who attend our ski days will be involved in the various ski classes for half day. Those who meet while taking our lessons tend to stick together for the other part of the ski day. So if you come up just to free ski and not participate in any of the ski training, you will likely be on your own for the day. There are other ski groups out there which will probably be more suitable for you.
