What we're about
As a ski club we’ve been around Rochester, NY for more than 40 years but we also very actively enjoy a wide range of year-round group activities in the Rochester and upstate New York area. Come join us for downhill and cross country skiing, bicycling, kayaking and canoeing, snowshoeing, camping, picnics, casual and formal dinners, happy-hours, and much more. Throughout the year we also have many group trips around New York State, around the country and around the world. We’re a mix of men and women, both singles and couples, skiers and non-skiers alike. Some of our most active members don’t ski at all. You might think of us as a Ski, Hike, Bike, Kayak, Outdoor Recreation, and Social Club. We offer fun times for everyone 21 years or older. Come join us at one of our events or at our General Meeting to find out how much you’ll enjoy being a member of our Club! Our Club is very active. Likewise, this website will change frequently with the changing seasons, with new content, trip reports, additional links… who knows! So please check back often!
I do want to let you know that we do have annual dues. $30.00 for the first year then $20.00 a year after that. This money is used to cover incidental expenses for our events, subsidized event costs, and some foods and drinks (beer, wine, soda, and water) at our many events. Please come to our meeting and learn more about us. If you are new to the group you can come to the events and pay a non member fee if one is being charged and test us out a bit before having to become a member.
***THERE HAS BEEN SOME CONFUSION, I HAVE BEEN ASKED TO CLARIFY. WHAT IS A "MEMBER" OF THE CLUB .....BECAUSE YOU ARE A MEMBER ON MEETUP DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE A "MEMBER" OF THE ACTUAL CLUB, YOU MUST PAY THE $30/$20 REGISTRATION FEE DEPENDING ON WHEN YOU JOIN. SO IF WE ARE HAVING AN EVENT AND THERE IS A NON MEMBER FEE, THAT IS THE FEE YOU WOULD PAY****
We have set the non member fee to be equal to $8.00 above what a member pays, so you can try us out, if you are unsure you want to pay the membership fee.
Happy Hours, Hiking, Biking, Kayaking, and General Meetings are always free along with several other events so you should have amble opportunity to "try us out!" I hope you choose to join, as we are a great club to be a part of!
