Calgary Ski Clubs

New to Calgary and looking for some friendly skiers? Need help improving your skills? Maybe you want to go on rad ski trips? There's a ski club for every age and skill set out there. Here are some of the best clubs & organizations in Calgary.

Après Society

A brand new club that only launched this year and is focused on being a community ski/board group that welcomes EVERYONE, REGARDLESS of ski level, from never tried it to professional. Après seeks to foster a community that welcomes EVERYONE who loves to ski & snowboard.

The club founder heard from many skiers & snowboarders that they felt disconnected & lonely after graduation. Après was created as a community to help bring all skiers & snowboarders together (regardless if they were part of a campus ski club). 

Après often plans day trips, multi-day trips, or even weeknight skiing at COP. There is a lot this group can offer off the slopes: food & beverage deals, ski shop discounts/deals, lower rates for accommodation in ski towns, a 15% discount on Paradise Skis (wink wink), and more! Après is also a member of the North American Association of Ski & Snowboard Clubs (NAASSC). Follow Après on Instagram to be kept up to date with events, giveaways, and awesome ski content!

Yearly Membership Price: $20; there is a holiday promo currently on, buy two memberships for $30!
