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
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.
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.
