Welcome to the Bend Ski Club!
Welcome to the Bend Ski Club!
NOTE -- MEMBERSHIP FOR THE 2020-2021 SEASON CLOSED EFFECTIVE APRIL 1, 2021. MEMBERSHIP FOR THE 2021-2022 SEASON WILL OPEN NOVEMBER 2021.
WELCOME TO THE BEND SKI CLUB WEBSITE!
The BSC primarily focuses on downhill skiing at Mt. Bachelor. Skiers with abilities ranging from intermediate to expert are welcome to join the club and participate in both on-mountain and off-mountain activities. BSC members are also eligible to participate in a broad range of trips sponsored by Northwest Ski Club Council and the Far West Ski Association.
Traditionally, we've hosted one or two monthly "off-piste" social events (e.g., social gatherings at Broken Top Bottle Shop and our speaker series at the Deschutes Public House). Unfortunately, like most recreational clubs, with COVID challenges and restrictions, we've temporarily suspended social activities. Hopefully, the pandemic will soon be contained and we'll return to business as usual -- fingers crossed.
We are a non-profit, 501(c) (7) organization.

ANNUAL DUES FOR THE 2020/2021 SKI SEASON
Last year, dues were $45 per individual member and $65 for couples residing in the same household. This year, because we won't be incurring the cost of social events, we've reduced 2020/2021 dues to $10 for individuals and $15 for couples. These revenues are used to cover space rental, food costs and other club related expenses.
Non-members are generally charged $10 to attend off-mountain BSC events.
All on-mountain skiing events are posted on the meetup website. When a "meetup" is posted, members have an opportunity to sign up for the event on a first come basis. In order to be notified of posted events, BSC members must join meetup and, within meetup, join the Bend Ski Club group.
The BSC Meetup link is:
Note that non-BSC members are permitted to attend 2 of our sponsored events on a trial basis. Thereafter, non-BSC members must join the club to attend future events.
Also, BSC members are provided contact information (including skiing ability) of other BSC members. This provides members an opportunity to "group up" independently of the meetup website -- no need to ski alone!
The club distributes a monthly newsletter to all members containing club news and upcoming events. A link to our most current newsletter can be found below. You will also find us on Facebook (Bend Ski Club).
