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.

GoCardless "Subscription cancelled" messages

Some members have received a message from GoCardless, our direct debit agency, indicating that their Eagle Ski Club subscription has been cancelled. For anyone affected, please note this is NOT about your club membership - that remains valid. It is about the payment schedule (called a Subscription) that GoCardless uses to take your annual club subs.

We know what the problem is, and who was affected, and will be fixing it over the next week or two. There is nothing you need to do. You should receive another message from GoCardless to say a new subscription has been created. We apologise for this situation. If you still have concerns, please contact the Membership Secretary.

COVID-19 guidance

With our focus now turning to the coming winter season, the Club committee will be keeping our Covid-19 advice under review. The Tour Leaders meet in early October will be looking at new guidance so watch this space for further announcements. You can find our current guidance for club tours and Scottish meets at the following pages:
