An interesting little-known fact about Austin Skiers - we are now officially 50 Years Old as of February 2020!! 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, travel & social activities We arrange 10 to 12 group trips each year and are able to get group discounts that are not available to individuals or families.
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.
