What we're about

This group is for skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels to meet others who love to ski or ride. Our common interest is a passion for skiing or snowboarding and our goal is simple… to get out on the snow and have FUN! During the season we'll hold monthly meetings (mixers/happy hours), organize day & weekend trips, car-pool, etc. Occasionally, we may schedule trips out of the area; like Tahoe, Colorado, Washington, Whistler, etc). We'll also partner with other ski clubs or Meetup groups for outings or happy hours. Anyone who wants to assist with organizing an event or get-togethers can become an Assistant Organizer, just email Clint. Mostly singles, but anyone is welcome to join; singles, couples, families; all ages. Whether new to the area or a long-term Oregon resident. Sign-up, watch for the meetup postings & get ready for another GREAT snow season with a bunch of new friends on the mountain!!
