Who We Are 

The Five Winds Backcountry Ski Club is a four-season outdoor club.  During the winter months, we enjoy cross country skiing on marked, ungroomed wilderness trails, off-trail snowshoeing and winter camping.  Each Sunday, from January to the end of March, a luxury coach will take us to different areas of our trail system.  During the spring, summer and fall, we enjoy activities such as hiking, backpacking, trail clearing, and camping.   Read more...

This year, we will be having a few more Sunday Bus off-trail snowshoe events for Members (announced closer to the day) as well as some snowshoe/winter camping events.  Short notice events such as ski, snowshoe, hikes, trail clearing, backpacking trips and winter camping will be sent by way of the Members' Google Group.

Buses run every Sunday until end of March or until the snow disappears.
