About Us


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.


 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.

"We Are Blood" - Looking for Donations

"We are Blood" is the Travis County Medical Society Blood Bank that has been around since 1951. They are looking for people to donate COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma. Please click here to download the form - it has the donor criteria and contact information. They recently announced as of October 28 they will be providing COVID-19 antibody testing for your donation! They have also reinstated "Mall Drives." Check out the latest articles. If you have any questions about eligibility you can call 512-206-1108 or email.

Convalescent plasma is a treatment that utilizes plasma from individuals who have an illness and fought it off and may possess antibodies that can be used to treat the illness. The treatment has been around for more than 100 years. The plasma, rich with antibodies, has been studied in other outbreaks of respiratory infections. If you've recovered from COVID-19 please consider donating your plasma - it may save a life! Thanks to several Austin Skiers we know of who've donated!

Austin Skiers Message Regarding Covid-19 Impact

As of March 18, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended people not congregate in groups of 10 or more. For this reason, Austin Skiers has suspended our Happy Hour & other Special Activities until it is safe to do so.  The Texas Ski Council (TSC) canceled their annual Bid Meeting originally scheduled for April 17-19 in Austin. (If you paid the registration fee it can be refunded upon request to the TSC.) And finally, our Annual Membership Meeting held on May 12, was conducted by virtual conference allowing members to join via the Web or by phone.

Please know our Austin Skiers Board will continue to keep our club running strong and provide updates via email, Website, Facebook and Instagram. 

Until we gather again, we encourage you to follow the CDC guidelines, take care and stay well.

Sincerely,

Austin Skiers Board of Directors
