Welcome

Welcome to the Philadelphia Ski Club Web site. The Philadelphia Ski Club founded in 1936 is a social and recreational club for adults. The first club meeting of the season is held on the second Tuesday in September at Burholme Park in Northeast Philadelphia at 6:00 PM. During the months of October through April*, meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 8:00 PM. The meetings are at Randi’s Restaurant and Bar in Northeast Philadelphia, PA. *December and May meetings are dinner meetings held at a location and time to be announced.

We organize activities year round and you can view our upcoming trips on the site.

For the 2019-2020 season, we start off the season with our Annual Picnic in Burholme Park on September 10, 2019.  On October 2, we have a golf outing at Northampton Country Club and on October 19 will be a group visit to the Museum of the American Revolution in Center City Philadelphia.

November 9 will be a Fall Foliage Walk in Wissahickon Park.  In January, we start our ski/snowboard trips at Elk Mountain with day trips on January 3, February 7 and March 6.. We are off to Sunday River, Maine from January 26 – 31, 2020  and then we have our biggest trip of the year to Sun Valley, Idaho from March 14 – 21, 2020.  On April 19, we are planning a hachet/axe throwing outing and then a Phillies game on a date to be determined.

MESSAGE FROM CORRESPONDING SECRETARY KAT BLINEBURY REGARDING THE CLUB AND COVID-19

Hello Everyone:
 
I hope you and your family and friends are all well and adjusting to life as it is now during this COVID-19 pandemic.  As you may have already suspected, the board has decided to cancel all of the remaining activities on our 2019/2020 season calendar.  This includes the April meeting and axe throwing event, the May dinner meeting, and the Phillies game.  
 
Those that sent me your payment for the axe throwing will be contacted individually about your refund.
 
If you were wondering about the club’s trip to Sun Valley that started on Saturday, March 14th, most of those that signed up for the trip went out to Sun Valley that Saturday and had a wonderful day of skiing on Sunday.  Unfortunately, the Sun Valley Mt. resort decided to close at the end of the day and all but three people decided to return home on Tuesday.  The three that stayed were able to snowshoe and hike (see attached photo).
 
Please know that when the time is right, the board will continue to work on our trips and activities for next season.  At the March meeting, the board planned to repeat our ski trip to Sunday River, Maine in January 2021 and to plan a trip to the Grindelwald area of Switzerland with a side trip to Budapest, Hungary in March 2021.  Let’s hope that we can move forward with these plans.
 
Please stay home and stay safe and to the healthcare and other essential workers among us, “THANK YOU”. Visit us on Facebook!
