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.
The club touring programme has over 60 ski trips a year, ranging from day tours and hut to hut tours in the Alps to ski expeditions further afield. Some are led by club members and others by professional guides. The programme also offers instructional courses to improve off-piste ski technique and to learn and improve other ski touring and mountaineering techniques - including avalanche awareness.
The club also runs a series of UK events, including scottish skiing weekend meets (January to March); summer weekend meets for walking and climbing; and lectures and other social events. These events provide an excellent opportunity to meet other ski-tourers and plan future trips.
For more information about the club see Membership Benefits and How to Join, or if you would like to learn more about the sport see Introduction to Ski touring and Ski mountaineering.
2016 Touring Programme
The 2016 Touring Programme is now available featuring 62 courses and tours, with a mix of professionally-led and member-led trips.
There is a wide variety, with hopefully something to suit everyone - from off-piste training through day tours and hut-to-hut tours to more expeditionary style trips.
Locations range from the Alps and Pyrenees to Norway, Iceland, Armenia, Japan and Canada.

2016 Scottish Winter Meets
As well as many of the old favourites, there is a new venue - a log cabin near Ben Nevis. Following on from last year we are repeating the weekend off-piste training course with Gillian Culshaw. We are also adding to the tartan flavoured adventure by having a Burn’s Supper variation on the Dinner meet – this promises to be a lot of fun.
