What we're about

We are an all age San Diego based Ski and Snowboard Club that have banded together to provide group travel for skiing, sporting, and social events for our members. You can checkout our website (http://www.nisnowdrifter.com/index.html) for more information, or join us through Meetup.

We offer ski trips from San Diego to Mammoth Mountain, and other great ski resorts across the western US and overseas at very low cost.

Bus trips to Mammoth are Thursday – Sunday with 3 nights lodging in condos in Mammoth Lakes. Big Bear trips will be during the week after there is snow.

Snowdrifter members can also attend our social events such as our monthly meetings, happy hours, holiday parties, hikes, sporting events, concerts and much more.

Membership is $45 per person. You need to join to participate on our ski-trips. Signup on our web-site nisnowdrifter.com http://www.nisnowdrifter.com/membership_application.htm , but you are welcome to attend most of our other social events without membership..
