Welcome to the Eagle Ski Club

We are the UK's largest and most active ski touring and ski mountaineering club, with over 1,500 members. We all share a common interest and passion for ski touring and ski mountaineering in the UK, the Alps and further afield.

We organise over 60 ski touring trips abroad and over 15 meets in Scotland each year; from day tours and hut-to-hut tours to major expeditions. We have a strong focus on developing skills for ski touring and on supporting those interested in leading tours. We're also encouraging members to use low carbon travel options as much as possible to reach their ski touring destinations. We hope you enjoy exploring our website, and finding out about our Club.

If you're interested in joining our Club, you can find out more in our membership section or visit our Join Us page.

Member organised activities (posted 25 August 2023)

Encouraging and supporting more ground-up, member-organised activities is one of our priorities. These activities can range from seeking ski touring companions at short notice to putting forward ideas for informal ski tours and non-skiing activities in the summer. To help support this, we've created a new member-to-member section on the website, which includes advice on Contacting Other Members, the Members Map, a page on organising member-to-member activities, a new Member Organised Activities forum, and advice on Creating your Club profile
