The Vancouver Skiers

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.
