Summer Activities

Members are welcome to use the Forums to announce hiking, kayaking, and other outdoor adventures until we start the new ski season in October.



The Washington Ski Touring Club is a Seattle-based, recreation-oriented club of about 360 members who organize nordic classic, skate, telemark, and backcountry touring ski trips.  We also have a monthly meeting with interesting programs on equipment, tours, weather, ski destinations, etc. (October to May).

We love to ski and encourage you to join us!  Our monthly meetings and potluck events are open to all. However, much of our website such as Multi-Day Trips, Discussion Forums, Nordic Patrol,  Weekend Weather forecasts, and our Newsletter are open only to Members.
