RMSSC alpine Skiing
Alpine (downhill) skiing is a central focus of the Rocky Mountain Seniors Ski Club. Each winter the RMSSC organizes ski tours to a variety of destinations, with the objective of providing an affordable opportunity that appeals to and accommodates all levels of skiing abilities. At some resorts, cross-country skiing is also offered.
RMSSC’s organized ski tours run early December through to late March/early April comprised of trips three to five days in length. We get to most of our destinations by charter bus which allows the skiers time to socialize and relax by leaving the driving to someone else. Members typically enjoy a welcoming reception on arrival with food and beverages, plus a club dinner one evening for all participants.
The Club’s ski calendar starts with an early season visit to Sunshine Village, usually with on-hill accommodations. In January the serious skiing starts with ski tours to Sun Peaks (Kamloops, BC). This is followed in late January by a self-driving trip to Jasper, AB to ski Marmot Basin for four days, including opportunities to participate in three days of ski lessons.
The Club has offered trips in the last few years to SilverStar (Vernon, BC), and Kimberley (Kimberley, BC) in February and March. The ski season culminates with another self-drive tour to Marmot Basin in March (Jasper, AB) which includes a costumed fun race with prizes.
In addition, individual club members may organize informal trips to catch a few days of skiing when the weather looks good or simply the opportunity arises.
Edmonton’s Snow Valley Ski Club is home to most RMSSC members with many holding a season pass. Our members meet at 9:00 am at Snow Valley a couple of mornings a week throughout the season followed by coffee in the lodge. Snow Valley also offers lessons and racing programs for seniors.
Skiing with RMSSC offers a great way to enjoy winter, stay fit and have fun. Join our Club to find out more details!
