Bytown Ski Club
This winter, don't hide: join your colleagues, family and friends on the slopes! With over 3000 active members in Ottawa, the Bytown Ski Club is one of the largest ski clubs in Canada.
The Ski Club is a non-profit organization run by volunteers who love skiing/boarding. We welcome snow sliders of all abilities and type: from beginner to expert, downhill, boarding, cross country or telemark. Through volume sales, we provide significant savings on skiing and related activities for our members! Some of the benefits we provide include: discounts at stores and ski areas, great prices on lessons, trips and other special events.
Welcome to the 2017/2018 ski season: sign up now to ensure access to store and hill discounts! Early membership is $6 for adults and $1 for children; prices go up on December 1.
Club membership is open to anyone. Membership cards will be delivered electronically—stay tuned for more details.
Update: the Austria trip is nearly sold out! If you are interested in securing the last spot, contact the travel agency as soon as possible.
Dear Bytown Ski Club Members:
Bytown Ski Club is offering members a fantastic European Ski and Snowboard Week group package this coming winter 2018.
This all-inclusive group package will take place leaving Ottawa Airport Friday January 26 to Saalbach-Hinterglemm region of northern Austria for six days on the slopes. For only $2695 you can ski or snowboard one of the world’s largest mountain regions with seventy lifts, 270 kilometers of slopes and over 60 mountain restaurants. A favourite with intermediate level skiers, this area also offers many challenges to more advanced, and the gentle sunshine slopes for the less adventurist. The touring on the famous ski-circus will allow you to spend a day travelling the Alps on skis or boards without repeating a lift or run from dawn till dusk when the après-ski mountain pubs will then call you in on the way back to our hotel to swap stories with folks from around the world over a pop or two! Our lodging is in the quaint mountain village of Saalbach within minutes of the lifts and with a ski run back to the hotel at day’s end.
For more information, see the 2018 Austria trip info page and join us for a Bytown Ski Club trip information meeting on Thursday September 14 at 6:30 where you can register for this amazing opportunity. If you are convinced prior, you can reserve one of these limited number of group tour package spots by contacting our local travel agent partner, Touringhouse Travel, anytime starting Tuesday September 5, 2017 at 8:30 am.
The week-long trip information session will precede our Bytown Ski Club Annual General Meeting. The evening meeting location is in the Coldwell Banker Realty Office Meeting Room at 1749 Woodward Drive, between Maitland and Clyde.
Hope you will join us and I’ll see you there on the 14th.
President, Bytown Ski Club
