The Eagle Ski Club
The Eagle Ski Club is the UK's largest and most active ski touring and ski mountaineering club, with over 1200 members. It organises up to 60 ski trips a year, ranging from hotel and chalet-based day tours to ski expeditions in the Arctic and the Greater Ranges. Some are led by members and others by professional guides. The tours vary in standard, but for most of them you should be fit and at least a good intermediate skier.
Some trips are offered expressly for instruction purposes such as the Off Piste Ski weeks which concentrate on ski technique. The Introduction to Ski Touring and Advanced Alpine Skills courses offer IFMGA guide led instruction in ski touring and mountaineering techniques, and general mountain skills such as avalanche awareness and navigation, glacier travel and wilderness first aid.
There is also a programme of UK events, including ski weekends in Scotland, walking and climbing weekends throughout the UK, and a slide show. These events provide an excellent opportunity to meet other ski-tourers and plan future trips.
