What we're about

Piccadilly Ski Club is a Chicago non-profit skiing, snowboarding and activity club based in Downers Grove, Illinois. We are a friendly and adventurous group and like to keep active, socialize and travel. We welcome single people and couples to join us. Ages in our club range from 30 to 65, active, working adults. Piccadilly members reside in the Downers Grove and surrounding areas, even as far away as South Carolina and Arkansas.

Since we plan events all year round, there are many opportunities to meet and make new friends through a wide variety of activities, such as skiing, golf, biking, social gatherings, and trips. In our 40+ year history, Piccadilly has planned hundreds of events locally, and traveled the globe extensively. We've taken ski trips throughout the US and Canada, as well as Europe and New Zealand. Non-ski adventures in our club’s travel history have taken us to Costa Rica, Mexico, Jamaica, New Orleans and Key West. Join us today to make new friends and go on your next great adventure.

Club Meetings start at 7:30pm on the 1st & 3rd Thursdays from August thru April; and during the summer months we meet the first Thursday in May, June & July at Emmett's Ale House, 5200 Main Street, in Downers Grove, IL
