During this time of COVID-19, the RMSSC has put in-person Club Social Events and Pre-Season Fitness training on hold, in accordance with provincial public safety measures and our commitment to promoting member health and safety. We hope to be able to safely reintroduce these activities in 2021!
Club Social Events
The Rocky Mountain Seniors Ski Club seeks to foster and promote fellowship among members by hosting events that contribute to our social well being. Our social activities bring members together to socialize and have fun throughout the year.
Our Club hosts the following social events:
New Members Day in February to welcome our new members and acquaint them with the club activities, including; skiing, biking, cycling, golf and social events.
Spring Dinner in May when we get together at the beginning of a new season. The dinner is an opportunity for the Club President to introduce the new Executive, say farewell to those who have completed their terms, update our members on activities and to celebrate the many volunteer hours our members contribute to support the Club.
Summer BBQ held in July, mid-way through our biking and golfing season, affords club members a casual gathering.
Bike Wrap-up Lunch is held at the end of our biking season in early October before hanging up our bikes for the year.
Information and Membership Day in late October for current and new members to confirm their membership over coffee and cookies and to get information on upcoming ski trips.
Fall Dinner in November brings us together again. The Club President provides wrap up comments on the summer activities as we look forward to planning our winter activities. Local ski shops set up displays that feature the latest in ski equipment and technology.
Welcome to Winter Day in early December at Snow Valley where some of us ski and all of us socialize. It’s an exciting time of year as we get together over coffee and cookies to plan for falling snow and the upcoming ski season.
Pre-season Fitness Training
RMSSC offers pre-ski conditioning classes yearly. Classes are 1 hour in length, typically 10-15 people in size and are held at the Kinsmen Sports Center in the river valley.
Classes run twice a week for 8-week sessions, October into December, January and February, as well as March into April. Sessions are dependent on registration numbers. Classes are led by qualified and experienced fitness coaches. Registration opens in early September.
