The Eagle Ski Club

The Eagle Ski Club is the UK's largest and most active ski touring and ski mountaineering club, with over 1300 members.

The club touring programme has over 60 ski trips a year, ranging from day tours and hut to hut tours in the Alps to ski expeditions further afield. Some are led by club members and others by professional guides. The programme also offers instructional courses to improve off-piste ski technique and to learn and improve other ski touring and mountaineering techniques - including avalanche awareness.

The club also runs a series of UK events, including Scottish skiing weekend meets (January to March); summer weekend meets for walking and climbing; and lectures and other social events. These events provide an excellent opportunity to meet other ski-tourers and plan future trips.

For more information about the club see Membership Benefits and How to Join, or if you would like to learn more about the sport see Introduction to Ski touring and Ski mountaineering.

2019 Touring Programme - Almost Full

The 2019 Touring Programme features a wide range of trips including off-piste training courses, day tours, hut to hut tours and adventurous trips to remote areas - running from December 2018 to May 2019.

The locations include the Alps, Pyrenees, Norway, Iceland, Greenland and Canada - hopefully there is something for everyone.

Tours are filling up fast, with nearly three quarters of the tours now full, and others only have one or two spaces left, so you are advised to book now to get the trip you want.

Note - you need to be a club member and logged in to the website to see the full details.

 

Scottish Winter Meets

The club runs a programme of Scottish Winter Meets from January to March 2019. Scottish meets provide their own flavour of adventure and whatever the conditions, they are normally great fun with excellent company. Scottish meets are normally based around a weekend, but may be extended.

There are meets to Fort William, Carirngorms Snow-holing, Glen Affric, Corrour (2 meets), Glen Feshie, Aviemore off-piste instruction, Killin, Mar Lodge, Snow Camping and Ben Wyvis.

The Scottish Dinner Meet is held in Newtonmore 25 - 27 Jan, and is combined with a Burns Supper on the Saturday evening.

There is also a series of Scottish Day Meets for those based in Central Scotland, which are organised if conditions are suitable.
