Special EventS

Hike on Sunday August 12th. This time it is the Laurel Creek Trail, not far from Hot Springs. This is a pleasant jaunt along the creek right next to some active rapids. You often see kayakers taking them on. It joins the French Broad River at about 3-1/2 miles, where you can also see people tubing, canoeing and kayaking. At 7 miles total it is a long hike but with little elevation gain. If you haven’t signed up yet do so soon. Contact Tom Bushar for more information. tbushar@gmail.com

Camping

South Holston Lake Annual Campout
Aug. 16-18, 2018

It gets a little better every year and this will be no exception! Join us for a fun filled weekend as we merge with the East Tennessee club on beautiful South Holston Lake.
South Holston Lake offers the beauty of the South along with the ability to have some fun in the sun! It's known for its smallmouth bass fishing, unspoiled scenery, waterfront restaurants and water activities.
We have a limited number of spots so do not delay. Cost is $75 per person and covers most meals and the camping site. We also give the East Tennessee folks money for gas (House boat, jet skis and pontoon boats). Only 5 people per camp site with a maximum of two cars, please consider carpooling.

We're all about letting the good times roll.

For over 50 years Asheville Ski Club has provided an opportunity for active people of all ages to ski, snowboard, travel, and socialize as a group. As a not-for-profit organization, the club was formed to promote recreational skiing and snowboarding in Western North Carolina. The club remains active throughout the year with activities such as mountain biking, tubing, hiking, caving and social events.

 

 

TRIPS

The Asheville Club sponsors domestic and international trips to some of the finest ski areas in the world. We also partner with the Crescent Ski Council, which is comprised of 20 ski clubs, to offer additional travel destinations at remarkable prices.

 

MEETINGS

We meet every month at a local establishment to socialize, and promote club activities in some fashion. Meeting dates, time and location can be seen here at this web site or on Facebook. Be sure to like us as on Facebook so you don’t miss any of the great opportunities the club offers.

RACING

Come and join our race team! We have a great team in the highly competitive Crescent Ski Council racing program. All ages and skill levels are welcome in the handicapped format. Feel the rush of competition and improve your skiing ability at the same time.

 

ACTIVITIES

We try to accommodate the interests of our members. There is a mountain biking group that rides twice a week weather permitting. Throw in camping trips, white water rafting, caving and a myriad of other outdoor activities and you start to get the picture of who we are.
