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.

Rick Allen

Rick Allen, who joined our Club in 2012, has been tragically killed in an avalanche whilst putting in a new route on K2 in the Himalayas. He was a very well-known and respected Scottish climber, and he will be missed a great deal. He attended the first ever ESC Tour Leaders Course in 2012.
