Membership Information

Advantages of membership in the Southbay Ski club are many. We have a diverse membership who enjoy a great variety of outdoor activities. We are alpine and nordic skiers, snowboarders, hikers and cyclists. In addition to finding agreeable friends to ski with, the club is affiliated with the Bay Area Snow Sports Council (BAC) and Far West Ski Association (FWSA) so our members are entitled to the many benefits and discounts offered by those organizations.

Members are required to accept responsibility for the lodge care and maintenance, properly execute the opening and closing procedures,report these activities to the club Treasurer or Lodge Chairman and attend at least one general meeting each year. Participation in committees and volunteer support is encouraged.
