The Vancouver Skiers
Welcome to our 2018-2019 season!
Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, the Vancouver Skiers club organizes bus trips to various cross-country ski destinations including Silver Star/Sovereign Lakes (Vernon), Larch Hills (Salmon Arm), Stake Lake (near Kamloops), Callaghan/Whistler, China Ridge (Princeton) and Nickel Plate (Penticton). Our members include classic skiers, skate skiers, and snowshoers, ranging in skill levels and ages. Join the Vancouver Skiers and meet new friends, socialize, discover new ski areas, improve your fitness level and learn new skills.
Join us for our Wine & Cheese Social in October 2018. Check out our Events page later for more information.

BC Punch Pass
For the 2018/19 ski season, CCBC is once again offering the BC Punch Pass. The pass gives you discounts on trail tickets at many BC cross-country areas, 5 of which are on our schedule.
The 5 areas are:
- Sovereign Lake (twice)
- Telemark (twice)
- Nickel Plate
- Overlander (Stake Lake - three times)
- Golden (Dawn Mountain)
If you plan to ski these areas, the Punch Pass is worth purchasing. Passes can be shared between skiers and 100% of proceeds go to BC clubs and programs with 50% of our members’ purchases going to our club.
