The Eagle Ski Club - celebrating 100 years in 2025

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 also celebrate our 100th anniversary in 2025 - you can find out more on our Centenary 2025 page.

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.

Major plans afoot to mark the club centenary in 2025

Next year marks the 100th anniversary of the club’s foundation in the small Swiss resort of Maloja in 1925. Planning is already underway for a number of special events and activities to celebrate the centenary, looking back on a century of ski-touring and forward to the future. It is hoped that as many members as possible, young, old, recently-joined, and veterans of decades of touring with the club, will be able to participate in one or more events. For full details see the special centenary events page.

Organising activities with other members

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

Encouraging safer ski touring

As part of your preparations for going ski touring, have a read of our webpages on advice for tour participants and a summary of our key safety messages
