 Welcome to Gateway Ski Club's official site

Gateway Ski Club was founded in the 1987 by individuals in the St Louis area that shared an interest in Nordic pursuits. Since that time the group has grown to over 300 members nationwide. The club typically takes two or three winter trips annually. Usually two trips in North America and one in Europe. Gateway Ski Club is made up of varying types of winter sports enthusiasts of all ages and abilities. Additionally we offer group travel adventures for spring and summer as well. There are no group membership fees at this time so; Come join the fun.

     a     Club News   a    

Greetings again!

                               Welcome to Gateway Ski Club’s 27th year of group skiing!   We have been able to keep the costs at or below last year’s trips.   Even though some details are not final, I wanted to get this out to you as soon as possible because of the deadlines facing us on the Europe trip.

            One change from the past - we are still going with two ski vacations again (Europe in January and Oregon in March) - we have decided to add a summer beach trip that will not involve lugging skis and boots around!   Our plan is to travel to Fiji in the South Pacific for an 8 day adventure in late July or early August of 2016.  The estimated cost from Los Angeles will be less than $2,000.00 but the cost of traveling from St. Louis to Los Angeles and the cost of meals other than breakfast are not built in.  We are working to finalize those details.    With that in mind, we think we still have an attractive pair of trips to offer you.

 We are going to offer the European Trip in January to Zermatt, Switzerland which is

one of the finer jewels in the Swiss Alps.  This is our third trip to Zermatt so some of you will recall just how beautiful it is.  For those who are not aware, Zermatt sits right below the Matterhorn and adjoins the Italian resort of Cervinia.  Your all area ski pass lets you lift out of Zermatt; ski down to Italy for lunch and back to Switzerland for supper.  Our “post trip” extension will be to Dublin, Ireland.  Our March, 2016 trip will be to Mt. Bachelor, Oregon.           Just so there are no misunderstandings, our membership reflects a diversity of financial circumstances.  Our trips have always been designed to give the most “bang for the buck” for a group.  If you are desirous of “high end” accommodations or special considerations, perhaps these are not trips that you should consider. We always try to provide the best accommodations for our participants and keep it affordable for all.

            Please keep in mind that our pricing is based on a “group” of specific numbers.  In many cases, unless we reach that number, the advertised cost could increase due to the fact that you no longer have sufficient numbers to constitute group pricing.   As a result, unless we have a large enough group to be able to sustain that price, we will either have to charge additional fees to cover the increased costs or cancel the trip and refund your complete deposits.  Please keep in mind that the pricing for hotel rooms are “per person with double occupancy”!  We will try to find you a roommate but if that is not possible, you may well end up with a single room supplement.  Above all, keep in mind that more and more we have very tight, specific deposit and date deadlines being put onto us!  Please, please adhere to those schedules!!!!!

            Finally, even if you cannot participate in one of the trips, please, please join us at the Happy Hours, parties and other group activities in the future. You are more than welcome to come and bring someone with you who may be interested in skiing with us.  I look forward to seeing each and every one of you at our club events and on the ski slopes.


Hope to see you all soon!
