Group Ski/Snowboard Trips

  • Our club arranges group trips for club members to ski/snowboard out west, on the east coast, and even to Europe.
  • The trips are reasonably priced for the value you get. All arrangements are made for you by efficient volunteer trip leaders. You can just show up and have fun.
  • One big benefit of going on a club sponsored group trip is that you can always find people to ski with at your level

Ski/Snowboard Lessons

  • Our club has its own ski and snowboard school that is part of the Professional Ski Instructors Association/American Association of Snowboard Instructors (PSIA/AASI).
  • We offer lessons with trained instructors at Bear Creek on Tuesday evenings at an incredibly discounted price (last year was $35 for 6 lessons) since our instructors volunteer their time to teach. Just one equivalent group lesson at most mountains would cost more than $100.
  • The lessons are for ALL ABILITIES from "never ever" new skier/boarder to advanced level for those who want to be challenged.
  • The club has achievement tests for intermediate (Standard Test) and advanced (Advanced Test) levels for those who like to set a goal and earn a pin, and bragging rights, as a reward.

Mountain Discounts

  • Bear Creek offers "club days" on non-holiday Monday - Thursday where club members can get a discounted extended day lift ticket with their membership card.
  • FDSC has a group purchase login at Bear Creek for discounted lift tickets on other non-club days, and also to purchase discounted season passes or 6-session cards.
  • Eastern PA Ski Council has arranged a discount at Montage Mountain for members of EPSC ski clubs.
  • EPSC has other discounts available on their website.
