The Eagle Ski Club - celebrating 100 years in 2025

We are the UK's largest and most active ski touring and ski mountaineering club, with over 1,500 members. We all share a common interest and passion for ski touring and ski mountaineering in the UK, the Alps and further afield. We also celebrate our 100th anniversary in 2025 - you can find out more on our Centenary 2025 page.

We organise over 60 ski touring trips abroad and over 15 meets in Scotland each year; from day tours and hut-to-hut tours to major expeditions. We have a strong focus on developing skills for ski touring and on supporting those interested in leading tours. We're also encouraging members to use low carbon travel options as much as possible to reach their ski touring destinations. We hope you enjoy exploring our website, and finding out about our Club.

If you're interested in joining our Club, you can find out more in our membership section or visit our Join Us page.

Arolla25 centenary club meet: registration update

The speed with which people registered for the Arolla25 meet exceeded our expectations, and we realise that many members will be disappointed on missing out. We are currently exploring other accommodation options in the Arolla area. A "waitlist sign-up" has been put in place and this will be used to help prioritise who takes any cancellations from the Grand Hotel & Kurhaus and helps the planning team to secure supplementary accommodation. Please note that if you have or are planning to try to arrange your own independent accommodation in Arolla you must let us know using the waitlist form as this form will be the basis for managing participation at all the centenary club meet activities on- or off- the mountain (including the centenary dinner). Participation in these activities will be dependent on places being available. Depending on demand, we propose to keep the waitlist open until 1st October 2024. We encourage members to register their interest as soon as possible using the registration link on this webpage (please remember to log-in first):

Major plans afoot to mark the club centenary in 2025

Next year marks the 100th anniversary of the club’s foundation in the small Swiss resort of Maloja in 1925. During 2025, there'll be a number of celebratory events and activities. Find out more here: centenary programme page.

Making things happen: volunteering opportunities

Our Club is run for members by members. We employ no staff, so we rely entirely on members who step forward to help run the Club. We have a number of opportunities coming up between now and our next AGM. These roles include Website Editor and Auditor. We've also got a couple of committee member opportunities coming up.

Organising activities with other members

Encouraging and supporting more ground-up, member-organised activities is one of our priorities. These activities can range from seeking ski touring companions at short notice to putting forward ideas for informal ski tours and non-skiing activities in the summer. To help support this, we've created a new member-to-member section on the website, which includes advice on Contacting Other Members, the Members Map, a page on organising member-to-member activities, a new Member Organised Activities forum, and advice on Creating your Club profile
