Club Archives

[This page currently under development]

The Eagle Ski Club has been around for nearly 100 years. It was founded in 1925 at the small Swiss resort of Maloja, on the pass between the Engadine and the Bregalia regions, and up the valley from the more famous St Moritz.

Many original documents, including Minute Books, Rule Books, Handbooks, Guidebooks, Yearbooks, correspondence, membership applications etc., have survived and it is the responsibility of the club Archivist to look after them. A full catalogue of the material available is in preparation, some of it has been digitised, and it is planned to digitise more so that it can be made more easily available to the membership, and to others who may be interested in the club’s history. At the same time, the club has a growing archive of more recent material that has been created digitally, and may never have existed in paper form.

This section of the website is intended to provide a portal through which this material can be accessed. For further information, please contact the Archivist: John Barnard (
