The Eagle Ski Club is the UK's largest and most active ski touring and ski mountaineering club, with almost 1,400 members. We all share a common interest and passion for ski touring and ski mountaineering and for getting out and exploring mountain ranges.

We organise over 60 ski touring trips abroad and over 15 meets in Scotland each year; day tours, hut-to-hut tours and expeditions. We have a strong focus on developing skills for ski touring and on supporting those interested in leading tours. We hope you enjoy exploring our website, and finding out about our Club.

Ice axes & crampons allowed on Eurostar services

Eurostar have reversed their policy and removed references to ice axes, crampons, etc from the restricted dangerous sports equipment section on their website. Following lobbying by our Club, Mountaineering Scotland, the BMC and Mountaineering Ireland wrote jointly to Eurostar and the website has now been changed. Eurostar say that " are able to bring mountaineering equipment with you when you travel by Eurostar. We ask only that any passenger carrying this kind of equipment makes themselves known to a member of the Eurostar team in the station on arrival so that they can ensure the smooth passage through the security/baggage check.".
