What we're about

Are you a skier, snowboarder or just want to have fun?? Meet other local ski buffs to talk gear, share stories and plan outings. Formerly "Charlotte Ski Bees," the Club was founded in 1963 and transitioned into the Charlotte Ski & Snowboard Club several years ago. We are a year round organization focused on promoting snow skiing and snow boarding. We also offer many other outdoor and social activities, ranging from monthly hikes, kayaking, happy hours and so much more!

We have some great trips scheduled for 2020. We get great pricing on our trips: discounted lodging and lift tickets at 50% or less off the window price. Plus you get to make new friends and have a great time - what could be better!! Check out our calendar of events on our website at www.charlotteskiandsnowboardclub.com! !

We have a great ski/snowboard race team and throughout the winter months compete in ski races with other clubs in Crescent Ski Council, an organization of 19 clubs in the southeast.

Our membership dues are $30/single and $50/household, and Alpine Ski Center gives a $25 gift card for each membership so you can't beat the price!! Membership is required to participate on our trips and with our race team but guests are always welcome at any of our meetings and other events.

Our General Membership meetings are open to everyone and are held on the second Monday of each month (except July and Aug) at 7 PM - location TBA - check our Meetup page for updated information on location. Check with www.charlotteskiandsnowboardclub.com (http://charlotteskiandsnowboardclub.com/) to learn more and join the club.

Please join us at the Second Harvest Foodbank on June 29, where we will spend the morning sorting and packing boxes of food that will be shipped across Charlotte and surrounding communities! This is a great opportunity to mingle with club members, while supporting our community. The foodbank can accommodate up to 30 volunteers from the club.
