What we're about

Bloomington-Normal Ski & Social Club

Our purpose is to enjoy life by participating in active outdoor adventures and getting together with friends. We have been a part of this community since 1967. In that time we have learned how to organize a variety of trips and adventures throughout the seasons. We also get together for frequent social gatherings and activities. Usually we have about 120 members in nearly 75 households. We are a diverse group of people who share a common desire for friendship and the great outdoors.

​Do I have to know how to ski?
It's not necessary. We have always had members who never go on a ski trip. They participate in the many other activities and gatherings we have throughout the year. But mostly they enjoy the spirit of friendship and fun.

What does the club do?
Most of what we do fits into three categories, Ski Trips, Summer Trips and Social Activities. We also put out a newsletter that keeps us informed about all the things coming up and letting us know about the things that have already happened.

Ski Trips
The main focus of our club is downhill skiing and we organize a variety of trips during the ski season. There are trips up to a week long going to major resorts out west and in Canada. There are also shorter trips to the Midwest resorts. We use the experience acquired over our many years to find the best places to ski and still take advantage of special rates and group discounts.

Summer Activities/Trips
(Summer to us is anytime we are not skiing)

There are many Summer activities in which to participate. These include canoeing, kayaking, bike rides, major league baseball games and other city activities, winery visits, as well as a variety of festivals and shows.

Social Activities
These include volleyball, golf, pool, softball, roller-blading, mountain-biking and other group activities. We also gather to listen to music, go dancing, or just for a little Happy Hour socializing.

Something missing from this list?

Our officers and board members are always looking for new ideas for fun events and would be happy to listen to yours.
