What we're about

For much more info, please visit our website at


The A2 Ski Club is a year-round sport and social club. We organize ski trips, both downhill and cross country: usually three or four out West, a couple Up North, sometimes Canada and sometimes Europe. We have two annual bike trips, one based in Bay View, north of Petoskey, and another that follows the KalHaven trail along the Big Lake. There's an annual Gilligan's Island canoe extravaganza, golf, hiking, and volleyball.

Our social agenda is both varied and very consistent, with an average of three activities per week. Music is a big focus, and dancing, along with Happy Hours, Movie Night, and monthly Euchre, just to name a few. There is always something to do and friends to do it with.

Our meetings, held at Cobblestone Farm, offer free food, libations and music to members, and all of the above to nonmembers for five bucks!

The Ann Arbor Ski Club has been around for 50+ years, and we currently average 300 members. We are primarily in our 40's, 50's and 60's, and many of us are single. While most of us live in the Ann Arbor area, we also have members from an area stretching from Trenton to Lansing, Brighton to Southfield, and even a few from Grand Rapids and Petoskey.

We started this Meetup group as another way to let people know about us and what we do. Our existing membership may or may not join this meetup group; they already know the "what, where and who" about our trips and events and they will be there! We send out a weekly EBlast to members and nonmembers and our events are listed on our website as well.

So, when you see an event with only one or two people attending, that's not accurate; we generally have anywhere from 15 to 25 folks at regular events, more at our dances. We are always looking to make new friends and welcome more members! It's one of our primary goals as a club.

Dues for membership in the Ann Arbor Ski Club are $40/yr per person. Paid membership entitles a member to free admission to our monthly meetings with free food, drinks and music; to sign up for our discounted trips out west and up north; and to discounts from our sponsors. We have many events which are open to the public, including members of this Meetup group. But, if you are interested in participating in our trips, please come to a meeting. The meetings are posted on our website calendar.

Avant Meeting Brighton Skiing

Mt Brighton Ski Area

Here's an idea! Meet before the meeting. Ski. Join the General Meeting. Break away and ski some more. Brilliant!! Alan Osterdale agrees and agrees to be your guide. At 5 pm he'll be hunting at the far end of the Ski Hill Grill, beyond the fireplace, for members and friends to join him on the hill for some pre-meeting skiing. Be there at 5 to get on-board an expert's tour of our local hill, then join our February General Meeting in the Ski Hill Grill. When you need a break from chatting up your friends do another run!
