Thank you for visiting the Greater Grand Rapids Ski Club. We are glad you stopped by. 2015 was an exciting ski year for our members with trips to Switzerland, Utah, Colorado, Canada, in addition to our many trips to Michigan ski destinations. 2016 will be just as great with trips to Austria, Beaver Creek, Sun Valley, and Aspen/Snowmass. If you are just learning to ski or snowboard or are an advanced veteran of many winter seasons, come and join us. We are active year around with golfing, hiking, kayaking and camping in the summer months.
To participate in the fun, please join or renew today! Dues are $35/year ($30 if paid between August 1 and October 31st). Just print off membership application (below), fill it in, write your check payable to GGRSC and mail both to: Membership Chairperson, P.O. Box 2084, GR 49501. We look forward to a fun season! Be sure to follow us on Facebook.

December 4: TGIF - Courtyard Mariott Downtown
Join us for the Christmas TGIF at the Downtown Courtyard Mariott (across from the BOB). Starts at 5:30. $5 appetizer, $4 wine, and $3 beer/cocktail specials! For free parking, pull in drive up and ask valet for instructions on where to park.
Trip tables will be set up, so bring your checkbook if you still have trips to sign up for - they are selling out fast!
At both the December and January TGIF events, we will be collecting winter items to donate to the homeless shelter program at Degage (located in downtown Grand Rapids). Please bring ADULT size NEW items such as hats, scarves, and gloves. Keep this in mind if you come across any great deals during the Black Friday sales coming up! In addition to winter wear, Degage also shared a wish list of other items they need:
Thermal socks, Long underwear, Hand warmers (the ones in a package), Turtlenecks, Gently used/clean sleeping bags and blankets
We will have boxes at the entrance of each TGIF event for donated items.
Thanks for your support and spirit of giving this holiday season!
