​Enjoy the fun with people who love to ski and snowboard!

Welcome to the Jacksonville Ski Club! We are a not for profit social ski club comprised of skiers, boarders and non skiers, who come together to socialize and travel to the world’s best resorts. We were established in 1969 and enjoy a long history in the Jacksonville area, providing a fun and economical way to participate in winter activities.    

Club Highlights…

  • The club is run entirely by volunteers who are highly motivated and share a common bond of skiing and boarding
  • We provide a large selection of ski packages, escorted by fully trained, knowledgeable and experienced trip leaders 
  • We hold monthly socials and various happy hours for members and non-members to meet, socialize and make new friends with others who share similar interests
  • We welcome everyone… singles, couples, families, skiers, boarders, beginners to advanced and those who don’t ski at all!
  • The club is governed according to established “by-laws” by officers and a board of directors, elected by the membership
  • As a member of the Florida Ski Council (FSC) we offer reciprocal memberships in all other Florida Ski Council member clubs, which allows you to participate in their clubs’ trips without having to pay additional membership dues 
  • We support the Blind Skier Program at the Florida School For The Deaf And The Blind through our annual donations and club activities

Blind Skier Program – Florida School for the Deaf & the Blind

Each year, 6-10 FSDB Ski Club students earn the opportunity to attend the Extreme Mobility Camp for the Visually Impaired (XMO), in Winter Park Colorado, through a point system that rewards them for grades, behavior, physical fitness and extra-curricular activities. One to two FSDB staff members, who also work as volunteer camp counselors, accompany the students.

Besides skiing, the most exciting activity the students enjoy is a snowmobile ride to the top of the Continental Divide on trails that run for miles through the Arapaho National Forest. Each student is assigned a volunteer guide, (some volunteers travel from Denver each year for the day just to become a sighted guide for our students in this experience) who drives them up the mountain to a huge snow bowl at the top of the Rockies (elevation:  12,000 feet); but the real excitement is about to begin!  The students are then allowed to become the drivers, and their guide sits behind them giving verbal (and sometimes physical) assistance as they speed around the huge open space at the top of the Continental Divide! It's an experience they never can enjoy anywhere else, and they love it!
