No good deed goes unrewarded

Getting involved with the Calgary Ski Club is easy, and the rewards are great!  As a nonprofit volunteer-run organization, we encourage our members to get as involved as their time, energy and enthusiasm permits - whether to plan an event, organize a trip, work at our ski sale or participate on a committee.

CSC points

The Club maintains a 'points' system for members who volunteer. Points may be used toward the cost of membership renewals, bus trips,  extended trips,  and other programs approved by Council.  Some events will use alternatives to points for volunteers such as gift cards or discounts. Full details are available to members on our Policy page.

First dibs on gear

Volunteers at our annual Calgary New & Used Ski Sale get first access to buy gear on the Thursday night after setup.  They also earn volunteer points for volunteering.

Paid events

Event Hosts earn points which may be used to cover a portion of of the cost of trips or other activities.

Cheaper trips

Money raised from the Ski Sale helps subsidize various events and trips and helps pay for administration. 


As an Event Host, you get to share your favourite hikes, trails or ski areas.
