2024 Saalbach Austria Bytown Ski Trip A Success

Our happy group of fifty-three skiers and snow boarders have all returned safely from our marvelous week in the Saalbach Austria region.

Check out this YOUTUBE video link for some further memories: https://youtu.be/yaO7gTh_8SE. A full trip report is on our website’s trips page.

Thanks to everyone who participated in living and sharing together the dream of an active healthy social vacation experience. We all have fond memories of an awesome week together in the Alps of Austria. Until the next time, Wiedersehn.

Feb 16th Bus Trip to Tremblant Sold Out

Registration for our March and April trips is still open.

Tremblant Bus Trip Discounts Extended for another month

In order to give more time to our members we’ve decided to extend the discounts on our bus trips for another month. $15 off each bus trip if booked in November, and $5 each bus trip if booked in December. In addition, everyone who books a bus trip will be given a $10 credit to offset the cost of ski club membership.

With the discounts our bus trip prices will be the lowest in town this year and we will be running each bus trip at a slight loss, however we really want to make sure the buses run this year so are discounting as much as possible. We will also provide free snacks again this year on each bus trip.

Tremblant Bus Trip Tickets On Sale Now

We have finalized our trip plan for the year and will be running 4 bus trips to Tremblant – one each month from January to April. Registration is open now.

  • Friday January 19th
  • Friday February 16th
  • Sunday March 17th
  • Sunday April 7th.

To purchase tickets login to our powerup page: https://bytownskiclub.powerupsports.com/. Tremblant has increased the price to ski this year by a bit. This year the exec made a decision to subsidize our bus trips by offering big discounts to those who register early:

  • Anyone who registers for at least one bus trip over the season will receive a free Bytown ski club membership (value $10).
  • All bus trips will be discounted by $15 for those who register by October 31st.
  • All bus trips will be discounted by $5 for those who register between November 1st and November 30th.

Discounts are available on a first come first serve basis and buses may sell out.

Lastly, every year we do a survey on how to improve the trips, and every year we hear that’d you’d like a pickup location with parking closer to the downtown. Starting this year, we have invited members of the RA Ski Club to join us on our buses, and will be adding a stop at the RA Centre (2451 Riverside Drive) with free parking.

Mont Cascades Lessons and Discounts now available

Still a great deal. Simply mention you’re a Bytown ski club member when registering by phone with them.
