Welcome to the Eagle Ski Club

The Eagle Ski Club is the UK's largest and most active ski touring and ski mountaineering club, with over 1400 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 65 ski touring trips each year, ranging from day tours and hut to hut tours in the Alps to ski expeditions further afield, and a further 12 meets in Scotland. We have a strong focus on developing ski touring skills and on leader development, with a range of awards aimed at supporting this. 

We are keen to attract younger people to the Club and are offering reduced membership fee from 2020/21 onwards for those under 30 years. 

We hope you enjoy exploring our website, and finding out about our Club and how to join. Here are some quick links to key parts of the website:

We provide support to ski tourers through three award schemes: the Development Award is for younger adults; the Adventure Award is for expeditions and adventures to remote or little known locations; and the Member to Member Award is to help members to organise and run their own tours with other members.
