What we're about

Thank you for stopping by!

Pine Point Ski Club is an athletic, recreational and social ski club of about 200 members. We love to stay active and have a lot of fun along the way! We schedule several Western ski trips annually as well as a number of local Midwest bus trips. Although skiing and snowboarding (yes we do have snowboarders in the club) is our main interest, we offer a year-round schedule of activities. Annual favorites include a Kettle Moraine camping/biking trip (https://www.meetup.com/Pine-Point-Ski-Club/photos/30215776/), white water rafting (https://www.meetup.com/Pine-Point-Ski-Club/photos/30440025/) , Chicago Blues Festival and more camping! (https://www.meetup.com/Pine-Point-Ski-Club/photos/30333063/)

We have skiers and snowboarders at all levels: racers, mogul monsters, cruisers, terrain park masters, and raw beginners. If you have never been on the snow before - we will be honored to guide you though this amazing experience. In addition, we offer racing through Chicago Metropolitan Ski Council (CMSC). It's a great way to improve upon your skiing/snowboarding and a lot of fun.

We meet every 3rd Tuesday of the month @ Ambassador Public House, come check us out and learn about this season's trips! Visit our website for more information: https://www.pinepointskiclub.com/
