The SCWDC Winter Sports Program offers a broad variety of group trips across the entire U.S., Canada and Europe. Trips to other exotic ski destinations may also be offered based on interest. The goal is to offer trips that satisfy the broad range of interest and skills of our membership. We offer a complete vacation package, including airfare, lodging, an experienced trip leader, and social events during the trip to maximize interaction within the group. Skiing in a group also means discounted rates on lifts, lessons, and equipment rentals.
SCWDC is a member of the Blue Ridge Ski Council, which has about 22 ski clubs in the mid-Atlantic region. Members of another ski club that belongs to BRSC, may go on a SCWDC trip at our member price, and vice versa. (We verify memberships in the other Club.)
Western & International Trips are offered to the western U.S., Canada and Europe. These include ski locations offering high altitudes, powdery snow and long runs. They are multi-day events that require scheduled air as well as ground transportation. The domestic and Canadian trips generally include lift passes but no meals, while our European trip this year is all inclusive --- all meals, beverages, lifts, lessons, entertainment and trip insurance.. Because of their popularity and scheduling demands, reservations are usually required long in advance. See a complete list of trips HERE.
Due to airline cancellation policies, we must finalize our reservations 90 days in advance of trip departure. Every year, some members wait too long, and are not able to take the ski trip they wanted. So DON'T WAIT, REGISTER AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE!

Eastern Trips are offered to locations as far west as West Virginia and far north into Maine and Eastern Canada. These trips are usually of shorter duration, and mostly are "provide your own transportation" (PYOT), with a few flight trips to New England or Canadian resorts.
Most of our trips offer cross-country skiing opportunities, when cross country trails are active at the particular ski resort that you are visiting.
