We Like Skiing … You Like Skiing…
The club is a community organization based in Upper Bucks County. Upper Bucks Ski Club started in 1974 as a group of 12 friends. Over the years we have grown to over 200 members comprised of Singles & families of all ages.
Throughout the Ski Season we take trips ranging from one day to over a week. The weekend & week-long trips are usually planned in advance but we also have spur of the moment outings throughout the season.
Each year we take a group to the EPSC Winter Carnival which is 5-7 days and usually goes out west to places like Park City, Breckenridge & Steamboat. We also offer drive-up trips to resorts in Vermont, New Hampshire & New York.
Our club welcomes anyone who likes to slide down the mountain, regardless of what’s under your feet. We’re not going to hold it against you if you like to sit at the top for a while before taking a run. Most of us are happy to find new Ski/Ride buddies. Most benefits available to skiers are also available to snowboards. Only exception would be a free ski lesson where we don’t have a snowboard instructor.
The Warm Months
Our season doesn’t end when the snow melts. Summer activities range from bike rides, kayaking, happy hour and many more. No matter the season we have something going on!
