About Us


An interesting little-known fact about Austin Skiers - in 2020 (next year) the club will be 50 years old! We are already thinking about how to celebrate 50 years of providing quality snow ski trips, other travel opportunities & social activities for our members – so stay tuned!

___________

Austin Skiers is a non-profit, all volunteer social club for people who love winter sports and travel. We arrange 10 to 12 group trips each year and are able to get group discounts that are not available to individuals or families.


 Club History
The club was formed in
1970 and over the years we have accumulated a wealth of knowledge, expertise and ski industry contacts enabling us to find really good values. Our friendly members also enjoy many social activities here in Austin throughout the year, and really like having new people participate. 

You are welcome to come to meetings and other Austin Skiers events as a guest to check us out. Come have fun with us.

Monthly Meeting
Austin Skiers had their November 19 meeting at Sun & Ski Sports. We had a GREAT turnout of about 30! The membership received an update on 2020 trips, future club Special Activities & Program Events. We also had a presentation by the store manager on new equipment who also provided some giveaways as part of our raffle. Among the other notable giveaways was a $200 gift certificate courtesy of Eddie V's-Arboretum!
_______________

When shopping for ski gear this season, remember to shop Sun & Ski Sports. Please remember to let their staff know that Austin Skiers enjoy a 15% discount off regular-priced items in the store. In addition, the staff will do a basic ski/snowboard tune for 50% off. This discount cannot be combined with other offers.


To be eligible for the discounts you will need to show your Austin Skiers Membership Card by downloading it from your Member Profile OR even easier by downloading the Austin Skiers app (iPhone or Android). Use your regular log-in credentials as you would when logging in to the website.
