The goal of the club is to seek out the best deals and discounts.

Family Ski Meisters

The Family Ski Meisters Ski Club was formed in the summer of 1968 by a group of ski enthusiasts who were interested in promoting the sport of downhill skiing at a family level. Their goal was to make the sport of skiing affordable for families with children, provide the opportunity for ski education to all club members to produce better skiers, and provide an atmosphere for children to learn the sport of skiing with their peers in similar age groups. The club has over time evolved to provide a year round schedule of family oriented social activities in addition to the family downhill skiing focus.
