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 tours vary in standard, but for most of them you should be fit and at least a good intermediate skier.

The programme also offers instructional courses to improve off-piste ski technique and other skills. The "Introduction to Ski Touring" and "Technical Ski Mountaineering" 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.

The club also runs a series of UK events, including scottish skiing weekend meets (January to April); 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.

The club offers grants to assist younger skiers (under 35) get started in the sport; to train members who wish to lead club tours; and to encourage expeditions and other adventurous trips.

Spring Circular Available on Website

The Club's 2015 Spring Circular is now available on the website, via Info | Circulars. Paper copies have been posted out to those members who have not opted out of receiving them, and should have been delivered by now. The circular contains details of this summer's weekend meets, and information about the pre-season meet and AGM in November - which this year will be held in the Wye Valley. There is also information about the summer slide show, updates from various club officers and subcommittees, and details of the club's 2016 expedition to Mount Logan.

This will be the last paper newsletter delivered by post, as the club is moving to e-mail based newsletters. The Yearbook will still be printed and delivered by post every October.

2015 Eagle Ski Club programme

There are still a few spaces on tours in the coming weeks.  Even if a tour was previously showing full, there are always some cancellations and changes so it is worth looking at the website for the most up to date information.  A website posting from last year was inadvertently sent to all members by email yesterday but this contains out of date information.
