Orange Council of Ski Clubs 
 
 
"Since May 5, 1971, Orange Council of Ski Clubs has been addressing the issues of Skiers in and around the Orange County and Southern California. Originating from the Southern Council to better serve the high concentration of skiers in this area, this motto was established - 'Toward Better Skiing.' We are and always have been an active member of the Far West Ski Association and we are also a member of the National Ski Council Federation. 'Toward Better Skiing' Our Council and our clubs are still striving toward that goal. Our volunteer based organization encourages our people to get in shape for skiing, find great travel adventures, support disabled skier programs/ other charities, be informed on public affairs issues, oh yes--ski and embrace the opportunities on the recreational race course with our own Schusski Race League. Each year we sponsor a trip to the Far West Ski Association Ski Week. In the past we have joined FWSA for Steamboat Springs, Jackson Hole, Lake Louise, Whistler/Blackcomb, Sun Valley, (to name a very few) and this year for the 2004 trip we plan to attend FWSA Ski Week at Lake Louise, Canada. Each race weekend there is a Council sponsored bus trip. Whether it is on Alpine, Nordic, mono, or shaped skis, snowboard, snowshoes, dog or horse drawn sleds or snowmobiles our people plan to have fun in the snow! Our local weather provides us the opportunity to play tennis, to bike, and to inline skate, as well as participate in snow sports in the winter, too. Spring offers beach volleyball, mountain biking, golf, hiking, not to mention water related sports – the varieties are endless. Some of the present clubs were part the historical inception in 1971and others are just making history – skiing – enjoying snow sports, making and being friends – all of the things associated with ski clubs with all seasons activities. Each of our clubs is unique – therefore it is easy to say – there is a club especially for you."
