RMSSC alpine Skiing
Alpine (downhill) skiing is a central focus of the Rocky Mountain Seniors Ski Club. Each winter 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 from December through to late March or early April and offer three to four days of mid-week skiing. We get to most destinations by charter bus, allowing our skiers time to socialize and relax while leaving the driving to someone else. Members typically enjoy a Welcome Reception on arrival with food and beverages, plus a club dinner one evening for all interested participants.
The Club’s ski calendar starts with an early season visit to Sunshine Village, usually with on-hill accommodations. January brings three consecutive tours (Sunday to Friday) 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 fun costume ski event 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 because 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 is a great way to enjoy winter, stay fit and have fun. Join our Club to find out more details!
