About the Ski Club of Sarasota
We offer several group ski trips per year from Sarasota or Tampa to the Rockies as well as international destinations in Europe, Canada, or Japan. Summer destinations are occasionally offered to resorts in New Zealand, Australia, and South America.
From time to time, we also offer non-ski trips such as bike and cruise in Europe as well as adventures and sight-seeing to Australia, New Zealand and Thailand.
Since the first trip in 1985, Ski Club of Sarasota has offered trips to fabulous resorts across the globe. Our members care about accommodations at upscale properties and enjoy the extensive planning that sets our trips apart from the typical.
Whether on the slopes or at apres ski or touring events, trips have activities appealing to skiers and non-skiers alike. In fact, the club has had several bike and barge trips touring European countries.
Check out all of our offerings, then send your deposit and paperwork for your favorite destination.
