You're never too old to go clubbing.
Ski clubbing, that is. The Mid-Atlantic is blessed with a wealth of active ski clubs. These clubs provide a chance to make new friends and participate in a wide variety of activities year-round. Most clubs offer group trips during the winter, where members can take advantage of discounted rates and leave the planning (and worrying) to experienced trip captains.
Please note that these clubs are not affiliated with or endorsed by DCSki.
