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 are planning to have Sunday Bus off-trail snowshoe events each week ( 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 starting in January until the  end of March or until the snow disappears.  Our first bus will be on Sunday, January 6, 2019. 

While many of the cross-country ski resorts have now closed for the season, we are still running one more bus on March 31st to the Five Winds area.  There is still plenty of snow and ice to be had in the area.
