The Washington Ski Touring Club is a Seattle-based, recreation-oriented club of about 300 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 April).

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, and Weekend Weather forecasts are available only to Members.

February 2: Snow & Spire: A 15-Year Retrospective

Presenter: John Scurlock, Photographer


Scurlock has photographed mountains and glaciers from the air for the past 15 years and he’ll show a selection of his favorite images and share the stories behind them. Enjoy stunning views of the places we usually see only from the vantage point of our skis or hiking boots: the North Cascades, the Cascade Range in Washington and Oregon, the southern Coast Mountains of British Columbia, the Rockies of Canada and the US, the Columbia/Purcell mountains of BC and the Coast Mountains of Northwest British Columbia/Southeast Alaska. The plane he uses on these excursions? One he built himself from a kit!

Since 2007, Scurlock has been involved in a project to photograph every glacier in the lower 48 states, in cooperation with a glaciologist at Portland State University.
