We take care of all the travel details such as, air travel, bus transfers, lodging, and lift tickets, allowing you to concentrate on skiing and having fun on the slopes. Once we arrive at our final destination, you have a free schedule until time of departure.
Our trips usually include 30-45 people with a wide variety of interests and skiing abilities. The skiing level varies from beginner to expert, with most skiers falling in the intermediate to advanced intermediate category. A few non-skiers can also be found on our trips, particularly on our European trips where sightseeing opportunities sometimes compete with the skiing. We usually offer a 3 day extension to a popular European city at the end of our non-domestic trips.
Each trip normally includes a pre-trip party hosted by the trip leader and opportunities on the slopes for people who want to ski together. This means that there are lots of occasions to socialize and ski with others who ski at your level. Of course, you are free to share in group activities or not. One reason members give for going on AE Ski Club trips is the friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
Our trips are known for their top-quality destinations and accommodations. We are a non-profit organization, with a goal to keep snow sports affordable.
AE Ski Club members also enjoy the benefits of membership in the CT Ski Council, including:
- Awareness Days – discounted lift tickets at certain mountains on many days each season.
- Discounted Bulk Tickets – discounted tickets for purchase that can typically be used at the selected mountain throughout the season. Bulk tickets are purchased in the early fall by the member for the upcoming season through the AE Ski Club. Bulk tickets are a great way to plan a ski getaway with family and friends at a reduced price.
- Special Discount Days – special deals offered for certain resorts for various days and times throughout the season.
- Kids Day – a mountain and a day is selected each year for kids to learn to ski for free.
