Ski Club of Ireland Holidays
The Exhilaration of a Ski Holiday
On a ski holiday the exhilaration of skiing well is matched by its congeniality. The special world of sun and snow, slopes and chairlifts, brings quick and easy conversation and friendships which follow into the apres-ski life, long after the lifts have stopped, and the snow turns violet and long-shadowed. The relaxed mood and physical well-being induced by the excitement of the day is enjoyed in the cosmopolitan and happy atmosphere of apres-ski activity.
Skiing makes a marvellous holiday, the resort a refreshingly new way of life, in all, an escape from the noisy humdrum of a grey winter. It is a return to the elemental, transporting one high into the mountains, beyond ice blue brooks and silent frozen waterfalls to a new world combining relaxation and exhilaration.
That is why skiing has become the widest participant sport in Europe, enjoyed by all ages and lifestyles and, having once had a ski holiday, skiers can’t wait to return to the snow.
Ski Club of Ireland
The Ski Club wants to bring this world to you and to the many thousands of others who use our slopes every year. The Ski Club was formed 55 years ago by ski enthusiasts who organise winter sports holidays abroad each year. That tradition continues today for its members with club holidays organised every year. Non-members are very welcome to join us too for a small additional fee (which also includes a free lesson or practice at Kilternan). Indeed, last year there were more non-members than members on our trips.
In 2019 two very successful trips were organised to Courchevel in France (early January) and Bad Hofgastein in Austria (late February).
In 2020 the holidays are again to Courchevel (early January) but this time to Kirchberg in Austria (late February).
For information about the holidays see further pages. If interested, please ring the Ski Club (01-295-5658) or send an email to email@example.com and we will be happy to answer any of your questions.
