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.
