Why Use Alpine Ski Club & Adventure Tours for your Trips

We have been taking people on ski and snowboard trips and having fun since 1969. Our motto is to provide fun, affordable, hassle-free trips to people of all ages.

We have over 5,000 members and 2,500 people traveled with us last year. We have quite a few people who join us for 4-5 trips during the ski season. The majority of our business is done through referrals and repeat customers….so we must be doing something right.

What do we provide? Our regular ski package includes lodging, lift tickets, transportation on a luxury coach with restroom and DVD player, drinks on the bus, sandwich on the way home, and a knowledgeable trip captain to provide information, advice, and answer questions.

The only other expense is food. You can dine at one of the many fabulous restaurants or buy your own food at grocery stores in Telluride since most of our rooms have kitchens or kitchenettes. Durango properties do not have kitchens but they do have a breakfast and the Rio Grande includes a Happy Hour too.  If you require ski or snowboard rentals, many of the ski shops provide our members with discounts.  See the discount page of our website.

Our buses are 56 passenger buses and most of them fill up. For overnight trips, we have room for one suitcase or duffel bag (airplane size) plus a ski or snowboard bag and boot-bag. In the bus, you can bring a bag to put over or under your seat. Unfortunately, we don’t have room for coolers so if you must bring a cooler,  it must fit under your seat. We leave early so we can get to our destination when it’s still light and the restaurants are still open.

We have a quick stop on the way up in Flagstaff to  pick up food for lunch. After lunch, we usually watch movies and relax until we get to our destination. Soft drinks and water are provided on the bus.

Each trip has a Trip Captain in charge. Some of our Trip Captains have been with us for over 25 years. We are so lucky to have them. You’ll see why when you join us for one of our trips.

It is very important for you to let your trip captain know if you have any questions or concerns. They are there for you but they cannot read minds. We also like to stick to our itinerary. We leave when we say we are going to leave and do what we say we’re going to do. It is important to us to provide each member with a stress-free vacation. We strive to fill every trip with wonderful memories.

About Lee and John

Lee and John met on an Alpine Ski Club trip 10 years ago. As they discussed what they wanted to do with the rest of their lives, they thought if Gerry and Doris (who were the original owners of Alpine Ski Club) ever wanted to sell the company, that it would be perfect for them. Both of them love helping people, skiing, adventure, travelling and learning. They approached the Clynes and two years later, they were the proud owners of Alpine Ski Club. They added the "and Adventure Tours." It is everything they ever thought it would be and even more. Hearing members talk about how much they love the club and getting so many referrals, makes them feel good and the fact that they work hard at keeping the prices affordable and offering the best product that they can, is greatly appreciated by their members.
