Let's start with “money”. Ski clubs get group rates on trips to your favorite destinations. Check out our trip descriptions to see what you can get for your dollar.
Follow up with “convenience”. The club does all the planning and makes all the arrangements. You just pay up and show up.
The topper is "People". Maybe you have people to ski with now, but for many of us there comes a time when our ski buddies fade away - our spouse or partner loses interest, a best friend moves away, the kids grow up and don't have time, or sometimes you just want to get back into the sport after years away. A ski club keeps you in the game with active people of similar ability who love the sport as much as you do.
Even if you now have friends and family to ski with, aren’t they interested in money and convenience? There’s no reason to overlook a ski club just because you have friends who ski. And a club gives individuals and couples a place to broaden their circle of friends.
Afraid of being locked into something? Don’t be. Although many of us develop long term friendships in the club, most of our trips include people joining us for the first or (sometimes) only time. We consider ourselves to be kid-friendly, although most of the “kids” on our trips are our teenage or adult children.
The best way to know if our club is right for you is to read our trip descriptions, call to ask about how we run our trips, and then come to a meeting to meet us. It’s a no-risk opportunity to up your ski game.
I now return you to the regular Welcome message...
Tom Quetsch, Club President

The Snowdrifters’ Ski Club is located in the Fox River valley and serves Chicago’s western suburbs. This year we are celebrating our 51st year of providing winter fun. We have about 100 members of all ages including singles, married couples, and families, with skill levels from beginner to advanced and everything in between. Our club is big enough to support a good variety of ski trips and off season activities, but small enough so that everyone can easily connect with others and contribute to the success of the club.
We sponsor several ski trips each year, including weekend, four-day, and week-long trips to the Western US and Canada. Every few years we ski in Europe and follow it with a side trip for sightseeing. When ski season ends, we don’t quit! Off-season activities regularly include bike rides, wine tasting, canoeing, golf, Cougar baseball, and other special events. We enjoy dining out together and sponsor several club parties each year. A number of our members do not ski, but enjoy these year round social events as well as traveling with us. Non-skiing partners often join us, as well.
