Most of us have 10 adult friends who love skiing or snowboarding, so why not create a club and reap some added benefits — free skiing and riding, lodging and shopping credits.

“We try to make starting a club simple and easy,” said Fred Graham, Ski Club sales manager at Holiday Valley. “At Holiday Valley, we know about ski clubs as we have been working with them since 1961! “

Holiday Valley’s list ski and snowboard clubs include school, college, corporate, community, church and other organizations. Why not explore the option of starting your own club?

Graham said, “Starting your own Ski & Board Club is easy, and anyone that enjoys skiing and boarding at Holiday Valley can start their own. All you need is to get at least 10 people to buy any of our multiweek programs (White Card, Pick-A-Night Passes, Flexi Night or Sunday Xpress), and by starting a club, your members will be getting their passes at a discounted rate!”

Multiweek programs provide great flexibility for busy schedules and are also the best value for season-long skiing and riding — programs can start as low as $9 per visit.  Eight group ski or snowboard lessons are included in the Pick- A-Night, Flexi Night, and White Card Programs and you can also sign up for optional equipment rental.

“Many of or our corporate and adult clubs start as a way to get family, friends and employees involved in a healthy outdoor activity during the winter months. Getting everyone out on the slopes provides a venue for people to enjoy the winter days, create some great memories, and, for corporations, allows coworkers to bond outside of work,” said Graham.

As a club advisor, once you start a club at Holiday Valley, you begin earning Advisor Credits for every pass your sell! The more members and passes, the more Advisor Incentives that translate into more free skiing and riding for themselves, friends and families.

Holiday Valley also throws advisor parties twice a year to give them a chance to meet other advisors, celebrate a great season and to just kick up their heels and enjoy all Holiday Valley has to offer!

Voted fifth in the East, Holiday Valley offers 58 slopes including trails and glades and parks, with an interesting variety of terrain, from easy to expert. Can’t ski during the day? Then take advantage of night skiing on 37 lit trails open until 10 p.m. every night. Holiday Valley’s state-of-the-art snowmaking and grooming system mean you can count on great snow conditions all season long.

You can rent the latest ski and snowboard equipment, relax in gorgeous base lodges, take lessons from friendly and knowledgeable professional instructors — all at affordable rates.
