We are a very social bunch, and organized events run throughout the year. The following is a list of our main events. Some are restricted to club members only, and all will be posted in advance, so keep an eye out for notification of sign ups and registration on our News & Updates blog.
Annual Season Opener
Craft Beer and Bratwurst at Coast Outdoors. Bring your friends, as we welcome the ski season and learn about upcoming winter activities, meet the executive and get together with old friends and new. This is free, and membership is not required to attend. This year, the event will be held October 23rd, 6:30-9:30 pm, at Coast Outdoors, 352 Lynn Avenue, North Vancouver. See you there!
Silverstar Trip and Banquet
Kick off the season right with lots of skiing, and mark your calendars for November 29 - December 1. This is also our biggest social event of the year, with as much as four days of skiing, refresher classes to get you tuned up, banquet and dance, and meet other club members. Full details are in the Trips and Loppets section of this website - along with registration for accommodation in October.
Every Wednesday, apres-ski, meet other skiers and enjoy a complimentary hot chocolate (for members), at Cypress Lodge, 8:00 - 9:00pm. At the end of the season, we really ramp up the calories, for a grand finale potluck style Dessert Night called SUGARFEST. Scheduled this year for Wednesday, March 13. This is one giant yum! Bring your decadent dessert to the Brown Bag room to be transported by skidoo no later than 7:30 pm.
