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.

Making things happen: volunteering with the Club

Our Club is run for members by members. We employ no staff, so we rely entirely on the voluntary effort of members who step forward to help run the Club. Volunteering opportunities can include helping out with a project, providing advice on a technical issue, producing our e-newsletter, organising a Club meet, and looking after Club funds and organising meetings. One of our priorities is to make sure that we do more to support, develop and recognise volunteers and their role within the Club. You can find out more on a new website page:

Ice axes & crampons allowed on Eurostar services

If you're travelling to the Alps by train this year, remember that Eurostar have reversed their policy and removed references to ice axes, crampons, etc from the restricted dangerous sports equipment section on their website. Eurostar now states 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.".
