ABOUT THE SKI CLUB
Message from the President
Dear Fund and Bank Staff Ski Club Members, family, and guests,
First, I want to extend a warm welcome to our 2022-23 Season—one of our most exciting ever! After our kick-off trip to Aspen, CO (December 11-17, 2022), we plan to take you to the slopes of Snowmass, CO (Feb 4-11), Snowbird/Alta, Utah (Feb 18-25), Les Arc Extreme in France (Feb 25-March 5), and finally, Sun Valley, ID (March 18-25).
For several decades, the Club has been a community in which colleagues, current and former staff, together with their families and friends, can share their common interest--love of skiing or snowboarding and other winter sports. In fact, the Fund and Bank Ski Club is one of the oldest Bretton Woods clubs, beginning at the IMF in 1967, with Bank staff joining in 1971.
The Club organizes trips to the best ski destinations in North America and Europe. Our objective is to organize trips to places that our members most want to visit, delivering value and convenience that they could not organize on their own as individuals.
Our Committee works hard to identify resort destinations that offer slopes catering to all levels of skiers, reliable snowfall, comfortable lodging close to the slopes, with great cuisine and convenient travel connections.
The true magic of the Club lies in our members. Collectively they create a remarkable sense of collegiality on our trips. And you will always someone to ski with, regardless of your level.
We are delighted to present the 2022-23 season to you and hope that you will join us on one or more trips.
And think snow!
